Beautiful sibia was the only common bird. The next morning we walked up the road towards Eaglenest pass about 16km. ahead at abut 2800m. Bird density was very low. Very few birds were seen or heard. We soon realized that finding any birds here is going to be a hard job. The few feeding parties were mainly of yellow throated, rufous winged, brown throated fulvetta, striped throated and black chinned yuhina. More
