The bird habitats of Bhutan can be roughly divided into forest, scrub, wetlands, alpine habitats, agricultural land & that land around human habitation. Unlike other Himalayan countries, Bhutan still retains much of its forest intact. The country's forests are rich, diverse & beautiful, forming some of the best remaining representatives of forest habitats in the Himalayas. Forests & bushes support the highest proportion (84%) of the country's breeding birds. In addition 57% of Bhutan's globally threatened birds & 90% of the country's restricted-range birds are dependent on forests.
