We are excited! With , we leg-tagged 3 White-bellied Heron juveniles in 2019. One, unfortunately, succumbed to injury during the fledging period. One of the two was photographed a little north of the Burichu and Punatsangchu confluence on the 19th of April 2020.

How was your weekend? . These foxes are from our research preserve at Lamai Goempa, Bumthang. Those of you who visited our institute knows this forest and particularly this trail (on the way back from Tharpaling). I hope all of you are doing well and staying healthy.

Well, it may be affecting a bit, however, the general practise and understanding by the scientific community is that the bird or any other animal can comfortably carry 3% of its body weight. The GPS tags we used weigh just 90gm, which is about 0.8% of the Griffon's body weight.

Amazing feat by the birds but it also shows how connected we are. Check out the video to know more about how the science was done and what we know about the species now. We have also modelled the birds' flight in 3D as they fly over the valleys and the high Himalayas [2/n]

Himalayan Griffons and their migration have amazed many, if not all. A movement ecology study on Griffons by Dr. has shown that griffons GPS tagged at Pelela, a high mountain pass in central Bhutan flew all the way to Mongolia [1/n] Check 👇
