Been in Kathmandu, Nepal for 2 weeks now. It's not a birding trip so I've only seen birds that have come to me. 27 Species so far! Should be able to hit 100 by the first week of August when I plan to do some dedicated birding.

But for now, here are some pictures taken from the Kathmandu valley.

Lots of monkeys in the city:

Rose-ringed Parakeets are common:

House Sparrow - a familiar species:

Red-vented Bulbul was a new one for me:

Viceroy-like butterfly:

Black Kites are incredibly common:

Oriental Magpie-Robin - also very common:
