Climate change, development and the black-necked cranes of #Bhutan

This article in Bhutan Today suggests that both climate change and development may be impacting the route of the beautiful endangered black-necked cranes of the Tibetan plateau.

The Phobjhika Valley in Bhutan is where they land and roost each winter, recently got electricity; this modernization has got to have some impact.  No one seems sure what’s happening.  At least it gave me an excuse to peruse my photos from my visit to that part of Bhutan where I spent a glorious few days in 2009.
