Pfutsero-Chizami

featured



Pfutsero-Chizami IBA is located in Phek district in southern Nagaland, bordering Manipur. Ripley (1952) has referred to Pfutsero in his paper. Blyth's Tragopan Tragopan blythii and Mrs Hume's Pheasant Syrmaticus humiae are the main threatened species found in the area. A part of this IBA forms the catchment area of the Chindwin river of Myanmar. This IBA is hilly with good forest cover, particularly the ridges and tops of the hills. Near Chizami, secondary forest with shrubs, scrub and grass dominates. This is mainly due to anthropogenic factors (A. U. Choudhury pers. comm. 2003).
