About 20 beautiful and worth-conserving pheasant-tailed Jacanas have been found in the Kyonekapyin-Tapseik Conservation Area, according to the Kyonekapyin-Tapseik Wildlife Conservation Group.

It is a bird species that can walk on lotus leaves and it is beautiful with long legs and tails. As it is now their breeding season, they can be seen in the Kyonekapyin-Tapseik Conservation Area, said a member of the group.

“Now, pheasant-tailed Jacana (Hydrophasianus chirurgus) can be seen in the Kyonekapyin-Tapseik Conservation Area. Although we do not have a thorough research on its population, we have seen more than 20 of them on a casual basis. It can be seen more in the rainy season. During the rainy season, the whole lake is full of water and there are lots of lotus leaves. As they rest on the lotus leaves, they are more likely to be seen in the rainy season. With long legs and tails, it is very beautiful. It lives mainly in the delta areas and needs to be conserved,” he said.

Since wetland areas are its normal habitat, these wetlands should be conserved so that it can live widely.

The beauty of pheasant-tailed Jacana (Hydrophasianus chirurgus) is the apple of visitors’ eyes. Therefore, bird lovers can come to the Kyonekapyin-Tapseik Conservation Area in this bird migration season to enjoy these beautiful birds, houses that look like they were built on the water and nature.
