Birds And Mammals of Assam Tour

Code: #817-MP
08 Days

Description

The Mishmi Hills area of northeastern Arunachal Pradesh has become popular in recent years as travel restrictions in the state have eased. The area covers a large altitudinal range over a relatively short ground distance which means bird diversity is excellent. With many species being altitudinal
migrants according to weather conditions it is also quite difficult to predict. The highlight species is the highly localised Rusty-throated Wren-Babbler which, after being described from one specimen collected in 1947, was not seen again until 2004. Other superb birds in this area include Blyth’s
Tragopan, Sclater’s Monal, Himalayan Owl, Cachar Wedge-billed Babbler, Rusty-bellied and Gould’s Shortwing, Dusky Thrush, Purple and Green Cochoa. Time will be spent at different elevations of the Mishmi Hills in order to see a variety of birds.

Our last full day back in the lowlands will be spent exploring some of the Dibru-Saikhowa National Park, which encompasses a patchwork of seasonally flooded forests, shallow ponds (or ‘beels’), and grassy pockets between the arms of the Dibru and the Brahmaputra rivers. Excellent grassland supports a range of rare birds including the threatened Marsh Babbler, Jerdon’s Babbler, Black- breasted Parrotbill, Swamp Grass Babbler (formerly Swamp Prinia), and this is the best place in India to see Jerdon’s Bushchat. The wetlands and riverine forests may also produce Baer's Pochard, White-winged Duck, Bengal Florican, Pale-capped Pigeon and Indian Grassbird.
