With friendly people, rich Himalayan forests and views that go on forever, a birding trip to Bhutan takes you deep into areas that most birders never go. With Blood Pheasant and Himalayan Monal both being easy to see, it's a "must do" for any birder wanting to enjoy birds in the Himalayan region. Add parrotbills, minivets, fulvettas, babblers, bulbuls and many, many more to this list and Bhutan should be high on anyone's list of the world's best birding places.
