Two species of monal, a colour pheasant have been sighted in Upper Siang district of central Arunachal Pradesh. While Himalayan monal is more widely distributed from Afghanistan to northeast India, the rarer Sclater’s monal is found in southern China and northern Myanmar. Sclater’s monal is listed as vulnerable by the International Union of Conservation of Nature while Himalayan monal is listed as least concern. Both species are protected under schedule-1 of Wildlife Protection Act. Himalayan monal is the state bird of Uttarakhand and the national bird of Nepal.
