The black-necked crane was recently sighted in Assam for the first time. After the last year’s re-assessment, these birds’ status in the IUCN Red List has been shifted from Vulnerable to Near Threatened. These species’ main breeding grounds are Tibetan plateau, Sichuan (China) and eastern Ladakh. They spend winter at lower altitudes. Locals in Assam have named this bird as “Deu Korchon”, signifying its key role in Buddhist culture.
