21 Days Myanmar Bird Watching Tour to Extreme North Myanmar

Myanmar (formally Burma) is unique in the world in its biodiversity. It offers outstanding nature, wildlife and bird

-viewing opportunities. It is the largest country in South East Asia and lies on the boundaries of continental South East Asia, Indian subcontinent and Tibetan plateau. This location marks a rich biodiversity with varied ecosystem, including lowland and mountance forests and various wetland habitats including coastal and riverine wetlands.

Himalayan species are found in the mountains in the north and west, and tropical Malayan species inhabit the south. Myanmar is still relatively unexplored, yet offers some of the most exciting birding in the region. In fact new species of birds are still being discovered in Myanmar. A recent example is the Naung Mung Scimitar Babbler Jabouilleia naungmungensis that was discovered during February of 2004. Myanmar is a bird watcher’s paradise with 1070 bird species of which six are endemic species which are globally endangered White-browed Nuthatch Sitta victoriae, near-threatened Hooded Treepie Crypsirina cucullata, White-throated Babbler Turdoides gularis, Burmese Bushlark Mirafra microptera, Jerdon’s Minivet Pericrocotus albifrons (recently split from White-bellied Minivet) and Andaman Teal Anas albogularis (recently split from Sunda Teal), and thirty five species are near-endemics.
