Today is #WorldMigratoryBirdDay. When we read about them, we realise how least migratory humans are. Here is Himalayan griffon vultures, as sub adult they are migratory. We found many in sick condition & were able to revive 21. Here few stories about migration with Indian touch.
The real global tourist !! A Demoiselle crane tagged in Russia's Transbaikalia was spotted in Khinchan village in Jodhpur district in Feb. She traveled about 4,368 kms, the longest distance covered by the tagged migratory birds reported so far. While we were under lockdown.

Hoy celebramos a las viajeras, en el #DiaAvesMigratorias, con un pequeño homenaje a una especie que desde los tiempos antiguos ha servido a las diferentes culturas como calendario. Hablamos de las golondrinas.
#WorldMigratoryBirdDay #WorldMigratoryBirdDay2020
Porque cada año llega un día en que las vemos. Y al verlas, dando vueltas sobre sí mismas, entre los tejados o alzándose hacia las nubes, sabemos que ha llegado la primavera. Durante siglos se ha celebrado su regreso.
En otros tiempos el paso de las estaciones no lo marcaba un calendario, sino la naturaleza. Entonces, las grullas que migraban marcaban a la gente el momento de la siembra, y el regreso de las golondrinas les decía que había llegado la primavera.

You know #Nagaland is 'Falcon capital of the world'. Yearly around 1 million Amur falcons visit #Nagaland for roosting, from Mongolia en route to final destination­­­­ South Africa. They Travel up to 22,000 km; one of longest distance migration of birds.
Recently a study was conducted. Where a male Amur Falcon named ”Naga”, flew from Nagaland in India to Somalia in eastern Africa, crossing the entire Indian subcontinent and the Arabian Sea, for five days and 10 hours non-stop and covering a distance of some 5,600km.
In one study three Amur falcons were radio tagged named as Naga, Pangati & Wokha. By 13 November they left Nagaland & by 25th December all three were in Southern Africa. With some halts in India. They took longest over water jounrey. The idea was to study their behaviour.
