Abstract:   (222 Views)
We report the first record of the Tiger Shrike, Lanius tigrinus Drapiez from Bhumtang District, in the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan. The new geographical distribution of the Tiger shrike in the Indian sub-continent particularly in Bhutan, occurring at an elevation more than 3000 m is beyond the elevational records of the species in Southeast Asia. This range extension of L. tigrinus at vast spatial scales, from East Asia to eastern Himalayan region of south Asia provides new scientific insights.
