Nagaland's Amur Falcon Migration

A 12-day, small group birdwatching tour focusing on the incredible spectacle of the Amur Falcon's autumn migration, together with enticing regional specialities of Nagaland, and abundant birds and mammals in the Brahmaputra floodplain of Assam.

Our tour of Nagaland is centred around one of the most awe-inspiring natural phenomena on earth, the autumn migration of Amur Falcons when clouds of tens to hundreds of thousands congregate here to feed up on termites before continuing their epic journey from NE Asia to southern Africa. This is one of India's conservation successes; locals have been exemplary in abandoning the hunting practices that would see over 12,000 birds captured in vast nets each day, encouraged by an initiative that champions tourism as a financial incentive. We'll also explore some of Nagaland's key birding localities in the South Assam and Naga hill ranges,  part of an interesting and seldom-visited transition zone between South Asia and Indo-China, together with a patch of evergreen forest and finally the rich mosaic of swampy wetland, grassland and woodland in the Brahmaputra basin of neighbouring Assam. Besides Amur Falcon, we'll look for a selection of skulking restricted-range species such as Striped and Brown-capped Laughingthrushes, Naga and Tawny-breasted Wren-Babblers, Cachar Wedge-billed Babbler, Blyth's Tragopan, Swamp Francolin, Greater Adjutant, and a superb selection of mammals including Indian Rhinoceros, Asian Elephant and Western Hoolock Gibbon
