a field guide to the planet - by Damon Ramsey
This is the second largest national park in Bhutan and has some beautiful broadleaf forest and birds...
I visited this area for half a day in the northern summer of 2019.
While walking along the road and being eye-level with the forest, there are some arboreal mammals to watch out for, including Himalayan Striped Squirrel, Orange-bellied Himalayan Squirrel, and Assamese Macaque.
And for the same reason, there are birds to be seen, especially in the morning before the heat sets in. I photographed Indian Roller, Barred Cuckoo-Dove, Grey Treepie, White-throated Bulbul, White-throated Scimitar Babbler, Small Nitava, and Great Barbet.
And the lower in altitude, the bigger the butterflies...
Thinking of travelling again after everything settles down? One of the first expeditions I am booked to work on is the NZ sub-Antarctics with Silversea Expeditions and Australia with Coral Expeditions. And here is a shortened version of one of my lectures in a warmer part of the world.
