Beautiful birds of Uttarakhand

Posting some absolutely beautiful pictures clicked by my cousin Soma, who is an avid birdwatcher. She had a wonderful trip to Uttarakhand recently.

The birding trip was organised by Mr Yashpal Negi a bird expert, who runs the Mandakini Birdwatchers Camp at Kakragad, Uttarakhand located 40 km from Chopta (chopta is the nearest road head)and 33 km from Devprayag.

The Himalayan Monal was seen near the Shiv temple at Tunganath.

Pika (with a baby) is a hamster like mammal found in high altitudes.
