The migratory birds have reached the Tarai plain and inner Tarai, said former chairperson of the Society Basu Bidari.

Peak migration period for such birds is mid-September to late October. But the migration can continue until the end of November. More than 150 species of winter migratory birds from Russia, China, Sri Lanka, India and Korea flock to the southern plains with the start of winter. RSS
