As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Bird survey at Palamu Tiger Reserve throws up two new species

DALTONGANJ: The three-day bird survey, which concluded on Wednesday, threw up quite a few surprises for the officials of Palamu Tiger Reserve(PTR). Led by veteran ornithologist Prof S Subramaniya of Kerala and Satya Prakash of Hazaribag, the team toured the Maoist-affected tiger reserve throwing caution to the wind.

This was the first-ever survey of its kind to be conducted in PTR. Neha Sinha, advocacy officer with Bombay Natural History Society, Prabhat Thakur, S Subramaniya, Raju Kasamde and Satya Prakash were part of the team that conducted the survey.
