Nagaland Wildlife Tour
Nagaland is one of the largest roosting grounds for Amur falcons.The state is a stopover site during their annual migration from its breeding grounds in Russia, China and Mongolia, to wintering areas in Southern Africa. Seeing them flying over Doyang and Pangti Reservoir is a sight one can cherish forever. The conservation of Amur falcon is a great success story for Indian wildlife. People who were earlier killing the bird became the protectors of these raptors and are now working for its conservation thanks to the motivation, training and mindset changes brought in by various NGOs , local religious bodies and of course the forest department.
