PublicationYear: Safari treat for bird-watchers in monsoon
Details:

Decline of vulture species has been a global concern for long. The vulture breeding centre of BNHS has begun releasing birds back into their natural homes. A diclofenac free India is a need to save our vulture species.

Monsoon season is tourism time for the country as we have a wide range of flora and fauna waiting to be explored. The Lucknow Zoo and Nawabganj Bird Sanctuary have begun an activity called bird safari to highlight their winged beauties.

Just like bird species, bird egg shapes too come in wide varieties. The variety in egg shapes have always surprised researchers. A team of researchers in New York have discovered that the egg shapes can reveal the flying ability of a bird. A news article in this issue tells more about this new discovery. The previous issue of BUCEROS had news on a portal 'Internet of Bird'. In the current issue, we have provided details about this portal, besides guidelines for our readers on how to participate in this activity.
 
Saving a life is always a reason for great happiness. We have shared one such rescue story of चातक (Pied Cuckoo) in Marathi for our readers.
 
Our last section contains abstracts of Nepal's national Redlist birds and timing of breeding in trapped birds.
