Red-billed Chough

Posted on Updated on

Pyrrhocorax pyrrhocorax
Nepali Name: टुङगा Tunga

Notes:
1. One of the most noticeable birds of the high altitudes in Nepal, as noisy as they are gregarious. Can gather in groups that literally blot out the sky.
2. Awesome acrobats and very fearless just like its most familiar cousin.
3. Found in coexistence with its yellow-billed brother and yak dung.

3. Not very approachable just like its lowland cousin.
