Read a very nostalgic article by Devendra Mewari ji on Birds of Uttarakhand.


अब, सच्ची बात तो यह है कि हमारे गांव में हमीं जो क्या रहने वाले ठैरे, और भी बाशिंदे हुए वहां के। आप ‘गोरु-बाछ-बाकार’ सोच रहे होंगे। वे तो हुए ही। बल्कि वे ही क्यों, सिरु-बिरालू और ढंट कुकर भी तो हमारे घरों में ही रहने वाले हुए। मगर इनके अलावा भी मेरे गांव के सैकड़ों बाशिंदे गांव की जमीन, खेतों में खड़े पेड़-पौधों और गांव की सरहद से लगे डान-कानों और उनमें उगे जंगलों में रहते थे।

समझ ही गए होंगे आप? मैं अपने गांव की उन चिड़ियों की बात कर रहा हूं जिनसे हमारी गांव की दुनिया गुलजार रहती थी। दिनमान भर तो हुआ ही, रातों को भी उनमें से कई चिड़ियों की हलचल चलती रहती थी। आगे पढ़ें......

kasturi mrig

All along the southern side of the Greater Himalaya between 2,500m to ‘treeline’ in Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttaranchal, Sikkim & Arunachal Pradesh. Upper Temperate, Subalpine forests, alpine scrub and meadow habitats. Two sub species of Himalayan musk deer occur in India, M.c.chrysogaster distributed in western Himalaya and M.c.leucogaster distributed in eastern Himalaya.
 Two other species, the Black Musk deer M.fuscus and the Dwarf Musk deer M.berevoskii are also reported to occur in some parts of Arunachal Pradesh that are close to China and Myanmar borders, but needs confirmation.



Not a true deer, but a primitive deer-like ruminant. Differs from other deer by not having antlers and facial glands. Has gall bladder, caudal gland and musk gland which no other deer possess. Canines are greatly developed especially in males.
Stockily built animal with small head having hare-like long ears, arched back and bounding gait. Hind legs are 5 cm longer than the forelegs. Well-developed dew claws or lateral hooves.
 The general body colour is grey-brown to light-brownish yellow or dark yellow or dark brown with two white throat stripes. The colour of the ear tips range from dark brown to ivory-yellow or white. Rump and thigh are darker and the belly pale brown. Genital regions are white and the tail is naked except for a tuft of hair at the tip. Fur coat is thick and wavy giving it a deceptively heavy built appearance.

Red-Billed Blue Magpie

The Red-billed Blue Magpie is a species of bird in the crow family Corvidae. It is about the same size as the European Magpie but has a much longer tail.

The Red-billed Blue Magpie occurs in a broad swathe from the western Himalayas, eastwards into China and Vietnam in evergreen forest and scrub in predominantly hilly or mountainous country.

Food is sought both in trees and on the ground. It takes the usual wide range of food, such as invertebrates, other small animals, and fruit and some seeds. It robs nests of eggs and also chicks.





The Red-billed Blue Magpie nests in trees and large shrubs in a relatively shallow nest. There are usually three to five eggs laid.

Vocal mimicry is very apparent in this species and its calls are very varied, but the most usual are a grating rattle and a high pitched whistle a little like a flute.

Grey-Headed Woodpecker(GARHWALI MAIN ISE KATHFODA BOLATE HAI)


The Grey-headed Woodpecker is also known as the Grey-faced Woodpecker, is a Eurasian member of the woodpecker family Piciformes.

Grey-headed woodpeckers live in leaf forests and mixed forests. They breed in May and lay five to ten eggs which are brought up by both parents. The young hatch after 15-17 days, and learn to fly in four weeks.



In summer, the grey-headed woodpecker eats maggots, beetle larvae and other insects. In winter it takes seeds, and can even come to garden feeding places, especially if fat is offered.

In 2006 in IUCN Red List it was declared as a Threatened Species but on 11 May 2006 it was retrieved.
