Dayara Bugyal trek is famous for its rolling meadows, beautiful forests filled with oaks and maples. But not many know that this trek is also a birder’s paradise.

Trekkers usually look at Deoriatal-Chandrashila trek as a trail to spot different varieties of birds. Well, it is. But so is Dayara Bugyal trek.

With this gallery, fresh from the latest autumn trek to Dayara Bugyal, trekker Madhav Anand drives this point home.

Here are the birds he spotted on the Dayara Bugyal trek:

Gray Bushchat


Black-throated Tit

Eurasian Jay

Himalayan Bulbul

Indian White-eye

Plumbeous Water Redstart

Red-flanked Bluetail

Scarlet Minivet


Streaked Laughingthrush

Yellow-breasted Greenfinch
