The White-bellied heron is the most endangered bird of Bhutan – with less the 20 breeding pairs (2018 census). The white-bellied heron depends of large rivers, but many hydroelectric dams now interupt these waterways reducing habitat and foraging grounds.
We set up 7 camera traps in Manas National Park. Some traps are aiming to get a tiger, some others get smaller cats… We took a lot of time to camouflage the traps… we will see. Thank you very much to @peli_uk for supplying the Peli cases and to @pauljohnbayfield for his help to modify the cases ! We are hopeful !!
