I wish I was a bird- then I would get to fly all over the worldRandom Person on Reddit
And we agree with that. Depending on the type of bird you become, you can even get all sorts of abilities – like supervision if you become an eagle or super beak if you become a woodpecker. That being said, do you know what they are called in Nepali? Or Nepali Names of birds in General?
While we do know the names of birds that are common like pigeon and sparrow, a lot of us are unaware of the Nepali names of birds that we don’t come across often.
Nepali Names of Birds
Since we are unaware of the Nepal names of tons of birds, it is a good idea to know them. While it may not help you much in your career or studies, it sure will help you if you need to travel within Nepal.
