Birds of Nepal

Since 1976, Tim and Carol Inskipp have been compiling a collection of books, scientific papers, articles and published and unpublished reports on birds in Nepal. These now form the most comprehensive and up-to-date collection of information on the subject, totalling 2,155 references. The collection includes 440 unpublished reports comprising 6,380 pages. These are mainly dated from between 1975 and 1999. This material is an invaluable resource for bird researchers and ornithologists, both within and outside Nepal. The Inskipps have been keen to have these unpublished reports scanned, converted to PDF and made freely available online. Digital Himalaya is delighted to have been entrusted with this important project, and scanning will continue throughout 2011.
