White Naped Tit

The rare White-naped Tit (Machlolophus nuchalis) was spotted on Sunday, January 21, 2024 at Bird Village Menar. Wildlife photographer Shubhadeep Guha from Aurangabad, Maharashtra, captured this rare bird with his camera. The last sighting of this bird in the area was about three years ago. This particular species is native to India and is found in two distinct regions: one in central and southern Rajasthan, Kutch, and northern Gujarat in the northwest, and the other in the Eastern Ghats spanning southern Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.  

Dr. Satish Sharma, a retired IFS officer, mentions that the White-naped Tit bird is exclusively found in India and is listed as an endemic species. It makes its home in thorny scrub jungles. Unfortunately, the ongoing destruction of these jungles poses a serious threat to its natural habitat. 

In Rajasthan, White-naped Tit is only found in Sajjangarh Fort in Udaipur and Menar. In Rajasthan, these birds have babies during the rainy season, from May to August.
