I was trying to avoid the air pollution in the Kathmandu valley so I focused on birding here at the National Botanical Gardens and in the nearby Community Forest. I contacted birding guide GOKARNA KHANAL. ( 91+ 9841816400) who was knowledgable, easy to be with and fairly priced as a guide. I stayed nearby at the lovely Godavari Village Resort. Got amazing photos of White-capped Redstart, and spotted Grey-headed Woodpecker, Blacked-Laured Tit, Himalayan Barbet, Scarlet Minivet and Himalayan Tree-pie...Gardens were well maintained with lots of butterflies.
