The landscape of Nameri National Park is characterised by semi-evergreen and moist deciduous forests. Over 600 species of plants and more than 30 species of mammals have been recorded at Nameri – the park is an important conservation area for tiger and Asian elephant. Birdlife is varied and abundant, with nearly 400 species finding their way onto an ever-expanding checklist. Perhaps Nameri’s most important avian residents are its white-winged ducks – a sizeable population of this highly endangered anatid is known to inhabit the park’s forest pools, representing the core of the remaining Indian population of 150-odd pairs. The dazzling array of birdlife also includes white-cheeked partridge; great, wreathed, crested and pied kingfishers; Amur falcon; grey-headed and lesser fish eagles; slender-billed oriole; Jerdon’s babbler; long-billed plover and ibisbill.
