BIRDS & BUTTERFLIES

 


Where Khangchendzonga - the third highest peak dominates the horizon, within such a small size and land area of 7096 sq. kms, bio-diversity in Sikkim can undoubtedly be one of immense interest to ecologist and environmentalists, earth scientist and nature lovers, botanist and biologists in equal measures. Sikkim epitomises the pithy saying: Small is Beautiful.


There is a great variety and numerical abundance of the resident birdlife with an overall 550 species which would account as much as 30% of the aggregate bird species found in India, Nepal, Bhutan, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.






 

From pheasants and tragopans, thrushes and magpies, to hawk-eagles and kingfishers, the variety and richness is breathtaking.

Of the 1400 species of butterfly fauna found in the Indian Subcontinent as many as 700 species occur in Sikkim. Of the diversified butterfly fauna, Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker, thus said: " by far the most striking feature consisted in the amazing quantity of superb butterflies, large tropical sallowtails, black with scarlet or yellow eyes on their wings. They were seen everywhere majestically through the still hot air, or fluttering from one scorching rock to another and especially loving to settle on the damp sand of the river edge, where they sat by thousands with erect wings, balancing themselves with a rocking motion as their heavy sails inclined them to one side or the other, resembling a crowded fleet of yachts on a calm day. Such an entomological display cannot be surpassed."

The forest stands are very diverse, and non-forested areas-such as cliffs, high alpine meadows, cascading streams and places all provide places birds to feed, rest and raise their young. A wide variety of residential and non-residential birds can be seen along the trail at different elevations and in different seasons.

About 180 big and small lakes spread over Sikkim's folds and faults are the habitat of an umpteen number of resident and migratory waterfowl and for Brahminy ducks principally, they are the permanent breeding habitats. Recent study results of about 47 species of waterfowl ranging from Blacknecked Grebe and Large Coromorant to Egret and Brownheaded Gull. Also found to occur are the Herons, Lapwing, Crake, Moorhen and Snipes.
