Keen or beginner birdwatcher who has not yet seen a wallcreeper will be key to see one. From time to time Wallcreeprs do show up in Kathmandu but there is no point in being too parochial, and your chance of seeing them are much better elsewhere. we can find them in the mountainous part of the valley, or at least we can try. In winter, however, they make it a bit easier for us and come down to lower altitudes. Rocky cliff faces are worth to check them. Sometimes the birds are even seen on buildings and bridges and may also put in an appearance on stream cliffs.
Sometimes it hangs on to rock faces and can be very hard to see. Catching a glimpse of a flying bird in its colorful butterfly glory may be easier- the wonderfully marked wings betray the bird’s presence to other Wallcreepers and to birders. It is remarkable to see when it continually of the tantalizing glimpse of their hidden crimson by quick wing flashes. These altitudinal migration birds arrive in Kathmandu last week of October and stay until the first week of April and back to breeding areas.
