Survey of Bengal Florican Houbaropsis bengalensis bengalensis (Gmelin, 1789)(Gruiformes: Otididae) in the Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve and adjoining areas, Nepal

Oct 24, 2020

A systematic survey of Bengal Florican was conducted in parts of the Koshi area during April and May 2012 by walking transects in known and accessible grasslands. The total of 47 birds counted during this survey represents the largest known population in Nepal, and perhaps the most densely populated area in the entire Indian subcontinent. A crude extrapolation of the count for the entire Koshi area gives an estimate of 60 birds.
