Checklist of the birds of Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh
Compiled by Jan Willem den Besten, August 2003
 

This my personal list of birds seen in Dharamshala during surveys in the area between 1996 and 2003 within an area of approximately 30 by 30 kilometres around the main town of Dharamshala, at altitudes varying from 800 to 4200 meters high. This list is taken from the forthcoming book `Birds of Kangra’, planned to come out by spring 2004. Included are 21 extra species derived from historical records. Comments and new records welcome.
