Saving Nepal's birds for our future

Birds delight our senses, stir our imagination, and inform us about ecosystem complexity.

Ibisbill

This extraordinary species, resembling an ibis, migrates from the Himalayas to southern Nepal in the winter where it forages for invertebrates in fast-running water. It is usually wary, requiring patience and persistence to capture its beauty.

Crimson Sunbird, male

The sunbirds can be thought of as the Old World's counterpart of hummingbirds in the New World.  They are often just as striking and elegant.

Birds help to keep ecosystems in balance.

White-rumped & Himalayan Vultures

Vultures, like these photographed at a "vulture restaurant" in Nepal, keep the landscape free of dead animal remains. Asian Vultures declined greatly in the 1990s due to certain veterinary drugs used in livestock. Fewer than 1% of the White-rumped Vultures remained. Now recovery is occurring in Nepal as captive-bred vultures are being released in safe zones free of poison.

Birds benefit agriculture by comsuming vast quantities of insects and reducing the need for insecticides.

Hornbills are major dispersers of seeds, thereby promoting reforestation. Asian Hornbills are suffering from poaching for their casques.

 
 
 
 

The beauty and genius of a work of art may be reconceived, though its first material expression be destroyed; a vanished harmony may yet again inspire the composer; but when the last individual of a race of living beings breathes no more, another heaven and another earth must pass before such a one can be again.

William Beebe, The Bird, 1906
