Nests of rare bird found

Researchers have found nests of the pied thrush, an endangered bird species, in the Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP).

Parash Bikram Singh, conservation officer of the ACAP, and his assistant Srijan Gyawali said they found nests of the bird during their study some days ago in Ghandruk and Chhomrong, located 2,200 meters above from the sea level. With the onset of the summer season, the bird mostly found in Bhutan, India and Sri Lanka migrates to Nepal. The researchers said efforts are under way to enlist the bird as endangered one as they said the number of the bird species is decreasing due to habitat destruction.

“The bird is at risk due to habitat destruction. The ACAP is its suitable habitat,” said Singh, adding that the birds migrate to Nepal to hatch its eggs. Pied thrush lays eggs in areas above 1,500 to 2,500 meters from the sea.
