The fourth Uttarakhand Spring Bird Festival will be held in Nandhaur WLS, 25 kilometers from Haldwani.


The Nandhaur WLS, covering an area of 269.96 sq. km. was declared a WLS in Dec 2012. Nandhaur is part of the Terai Arc Landscape and is located 25 kilometers from Haldwani in Nainital and Champawat Districts. The Nandhaur area is flanked by River Gola in the west and River Sharda in the eastand intersected by River Nandhaur which flows east to west in the northern area and then turns south to bisect the landscape into two before disappearing in the Terai area. Nandhaur also has large swathes of undisturbed forests, which have virtually no habitation. It is a critical link for the wildlife populations to move across the Terai Arc Landscape.

The bird festival will be conducted at Chorgaliya, which is 25 kilometers east of Haldwani. Activities at the festival will include birdwatching, talks, children’s activities, film shows and lots more. http://www.uttarakhandbirdfestival.in/

Verditer #FlyCatecher, Narendra Nagar, Tehri Garhwal, Uttarakhand. May, 2016. It is named after its distinctive shade of copper-sulphate blue and has a dark patch between the eyes and above the bill base. The adult males are intense blue on all areas of the body, except for the black eye-patch and grey vent. Adult females and sub-adults are lighter blue. They are also interesting among the flycatchers in that they forage above the canopy level and perching on electric wires or exposed tree top branches.
