It is a great privilege to study nature in the wilderness. In an entire forest full of towering trees , only a couple attracted all the woodpecker and nuthatches. You can see the multiple holes made by them on the stem, the great tree was perforated like a gun silencer from top to bottom. This White-tailed Nuthatch looking for a bite in one such hole.
Hello guys, planning my first trip to Pangot and Sattal. Focus of the trip is birding and any amount of walking / trails / trekking. Any suggestions on where I should be staying in these places, birding guides that you recommend would be great. Thanks
View from Kunjakharak in Pangot
On the main road from Pangot, right at the end is what is known as Kunjakharak. There is a Forest Rest House there which is probably not all that functional. But trek a bit, during winters you can come across Goral grazing on the other side. Often, you can find Himalayan Snowcocks on the slopes. The view by itself is breathtaking. This was taken in bad light quite late in the evening.
