Summer alpine birding!
I was keen to visit the high altitudes of Eastern Himalaya in summer to experience birds breeding in these unique landscapes — coniferous and alpine. Target birds were the likes of Gould’s Shortwing, Fire-tailed Myzornis, Fire-tailed Sunbird, Finches, Grosbeaks, Grandala, Leaf and Bush-warblers, etc. Shashank Dalvi (who was, as usual, guiding me) and other bird tour leaders specializing in North-east India usually combine high altitudes of Western Arunachal with Eaglenest and lowland jungle like Nameri, Pakke and Kaziranga.
In short, it was an outstanding trip — one of my best ever. Attached some images here.
