Himalayan Monal Pheasant

Himalayan Monal Pheasant  (Lophophorus impejanus) spotted at Tharpaling Lhakhang, Bumthang, Bhutan on 17/09/12. This birds are so attached to humans that they never run away when humans are near to them. The monastery feeds them whenever they are around the monastery. Amazing!!!

  1. Hi Choki,
    Just wondering if we are working in the same field. I am a forester by profession and currently undertake research on social science and ecology based in the Ugyen Wangchuck Institute, Bumthang.
    Just wanted to let you know that I like your pictures. I have recently purchase Canon 7D and I am trying to learn some of the basics of photography.
    Cheers.

  2. Hi Sangay Sir, I am also forester by profession. I am currently working at National Biodiversity Centre in Serbithang, Thimphu. I really thank you for the appreciations and congratulations for the new camera. I was there at your institute last time to attend training on Social Research, you also presented your research findings on fuel wood consumption in alpine areas.

    Regards.
