President, PBS

Greetings to all,
Pokhara bird society is an organization dedicated to conservation since its inception and has been carrying out its activities accordingly. Considering Earth as a common habitat for biodiversity, we carry out our activities on the status, distribution, ecology and habitat conservation of birds. As we are losing important habitats like forests, wetland and grasslands, the bird species are vulnerable and some are already near extinction. In addition, the human-induced problems like unplanned urbanization, pollution, illegal hunting and poaching are adding more threats to their survival. So, we feel the conservation of birds and biodiversity as an urgency of the hour and look forward to our collective and unified efforts toward achieving this goal. We would like to present our gratitude to all the advisors, collaborators, members and well-wishers, and hope for continued cooperation in the future, as we work toward our shared goal of conserving our feathered friends.

Bird of the month

The Spiny Babbler (Turdoides nipalensis) is a unique bird species endemic to the central Himalayas of Nepal. Known for its distinctive appearance characterized by a spiky plumage, it is a medium-sized, brown-colored bird with a spiky crest, giving it a somewhat punk-like appearance. This elusive and social bird inhabits dense scrublands and forests, moving in groups and communicating through a variety of vocalizations. Due to its restricted range and habitat loss, the Spiny Babbler faces conservation challenges and is classified as “vulnerable” on the IUCN Red List.
