    Default Reshikhola and Sillory Gaon - The unexplored birding destinations

    I was relishing a plateful of hot steamed momos along with a mug of creamy milk coffee sitting under a pine tree. The place was surrounded by lush green forests and in every nook and corner of the forest cover I could feel the presence of hundreds of colourful tiny creatures – singing, chirping and moving to and fro. An early morning cool breeze was desperately trying to nullify the effect of slowly raising temperature in the environment.

    Suddenly a pat on my back following my husband’s whispering ‘come with me’ made me follow him a few yards before I could discover a small flock of ‘Grey-sided Laughingthrush’ inside a dense foliage.

    Sighting of this rare beauty was just the beginning of our two days wonderful birding trip to Sillory Gaon and Reshikhola at Kalimpong Sub-Division of Darjeeling district in West Bengal. These places are rapidly gaining popularity among birders and we did not miss the opportunity of visiting there when we could manage to add two more days to expand our weekend in the month of January, this year.
