We enjoyed putting together this four part series on “Birds of North Eastern India” and we hope that you liked browsing through them.
We start the final part with the Lesser Adjutant stork, which along with it larger cousin the Greater Adjutant is one of the largest and rarest of all Storks in the world and the Kaziranga Wildlife Sanctuary is one of the best places to spot this vulnerable species.
Coming to the Black-hooded Oriole – it is a widespread resident of India. It’s vibrant yellow plumage with the contrasting and striking black head makes it stand out amongst the foliage. You can see more images of this species in one of our recent posts here.
This little famous song bird called the White-rumped Shama is known for its wide-ranging songs, which are loud and melodious. And it is because of this singing nature of theirs, that they are a popular cage bird in Southeast Asia.
The Common Stonechat is ubiquitous across North Eastern India during winters.

The Alexandrine Parakeet is a widespread resident of India and interestingly gets its name from Alexander the Great. They are notably common in the Kaziranga Wildlife Sanctuary. This male Alexandrine Parakeet was spotted feasting on the cherries found on the Singapore Cherry trees in the Sanctuary.

The Indian Roller is a collage of colors. It’s striking blue colored plumage is best seen in flight. You can see more images of this species in our post here.
And finally we close with the image of the Black-necked Stork, which is a widespread resident of India. Unfortunately water pollution and habitat destruction has attributed to their “Near Threatened” conservation status.
