Well, Bhutan is a paradise for bird lovers and ornithologists. Over 670 species of birds have been recorded and many more are yet to be discovered. Around 50 species of the known birds are winter migrants. In fact, it is the home to many species of birds that are in danger of extinction such as the Imperial Heron, which is one of the fifty rarest birds in the world. Also the rare Black-Necked Crane, which breeds in Tibet and then migrates over the Himalayas to Bhutan during the winter months. The Cranes can be spotted in Phobjikha Valley in Western Bhutan. They migrate to these winter roosting sites in the months of September and October and fly back to Tibet between February and March.
