Rare Egyptian Vulture sighted in Ganjam

Berhampur, July 28: In a surprise sighting, the almost extinct Rare Egyptian Vulture was sighted in a small hamlet near Golanthara on the outskirts of Berhampur city in Ganjam district.

Bird enthusiast and founder of Berhampur Birds Dr Jyoti Prasad Pattnaik sighted these big birds near a field in Golanthara. This vulture has been sighted from different parts of the state but this time there are very clear shots of images of both mature as well as juvenile birds and this is a good sign for the conservation of the same bird.

Since these birds are procreating it has sent a good feeling amongst the bird lovers of Odisha that these birds may still be largely present and may come out of the extinction category soon.

Dr Pattnaik, a doctor by profession has been instrumental about conservation of birds and has created a group called Berhampur Birds wherein he showcases birds from in and around Berhampur. In March this year he had reported about the sighting of an Egyptian Vulture near Bhetanai, in Ganjam district.
