Great Barbet Himalayan Bulbul

The largest amongst our barbets, this hill species is more often heard than seen. It's incessant and resounding 'phiao phiao' call is unmistakable reminder of the bird's presence. 

A common species at lower altitudes in the Himalayas, this cheerful Pycnonotus bulbul prefers hill scrub and cultivated areas. A regional endemic species.

Black-lored Tit Bar-tailed Treecreeper

An Indian endemic, this Parus species ranges from Kashmir to the Arun-Kosi valley in eastern Nepal. It is replaced by the very similar Yellow-cheeked Tit further east. 

The most commonly met treecreeper in the northwestern Himalayas, this species is often found in mixed hunting parties consisting of smallies. This image is from Landour.
