Amaurornis phoenicurus
Nepali Name: सिमकुखुरा Sim Kukhura

Notes:
1. Reacts to playback very well.
2. Keeps to the thickets as much as it can. That was the reason why seeing or hearing this bird frequently around Kathmandu, it took a while to get a good shot.

Do you love birds and trekking? One of our co-founders of this blog has made a trekking app that shows which bird can be found where along certain trekking regions. The app has redefined what a guidebook or a field book can achieve. It shows information on birds, flowers, animals and butterflies in a context sensitive manner. This means that such flora and fauna is attached only to places where they can be seen and are only shown when they can be seen. Find out more.
