In Pictures: Migratory birds in Taudaha


Migratory birds perch on branches of a tree as the sun rises on the wetlands of Taudaha in the outskirts of Kathmandu, as seen this morning.

Taudaha is one of the most popular sites for bird watching in the Kathmandu Valley.

Also known for its religious importance, Taudaha also hosts in and around it over 100 species of birds, both resident and migratory, which gives the largest natural pond in the Valley ecological importance too.

Every year, a number of bird species migrate to Taudaha from far away places, some even all the way from Siberia.
