Abstract:   (670 Views)
The Black–headed Bunting Emberiza melanocephala (Scopoli) is a scarce winter visitor and passage migrant bird in Nepal and recorded mainly in the eastern part of the country. Similarly, the Blue–winged Laughingthrush Trochalopteron squamatum (Gould) is an uncommon resident of Nepal having rare observations from central–west to eastern Nepal. Also, the Tricoloured Munia Lonchura malacca (Linnaeus) is considered as a local resident in Nepal specially in the Chitwan National Park, Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve and Kathmandu Valley. None of these species have been photographed in the Pokhara valley before. This study presents the first photographic record of E. melanocephala and T. squamatum; and the first ever record of L. malacca from the Pokhara Valley, Nepal. The E. melanocephala was observed during winter season in the bushes of Ipomoea carnea while T. squamatum and L. malacca were recorded during autumn and monsoon season in Schima-Castanopsis forest and clump of Phragmites karka respectively.
