These master birds are observed to have been breeding in 35 to 46 colonies in Kangra District on very old straight trees of chil (Pinus roxburgii) growing on mild slopes in Shivalik hills,hence,the retention of these dead and dry standing trees has become important as these birds are using such trees for roosting and their surveillance.In the past,such breeding sites were under threat due to timber exploitation and resin tapping,by the state corporation which is now stopped from these forests,to protect the Vultures. It is observed that some times, the young ones remain unattended during the nights as their parents remain out on one reason or the other.In the neighboring countries,i.e. in Nepal also a dramatic decline of two species,G. bengalensis and G.tenuirostris was reported,since mid 1990s and the rate of decline within a decade was estimated at 90-95% (Nepal Country Report,2006),thus the conservation efforts of these Species has attained prominence in Himachal too.Wildlife wing has planned to go for a systematic counting of this species along with other prominent Species like western tragopan, cheer pheasants, monals and other important Himalayan avi-fauna,from this year onwards for which nominal funds have been earmarked and will continue in the next 8 to 10 years. The Wildlife wing is likely to get the results of abundance of these Species by next year after full counting of the master bird.In Bangladesh, the Gyps bengalensis is threatened and Gyps. indicus & Gyps fulvus are now rare (Bangladesh Country Report, 2006). Historically no estimation of this Species has been carried out or reported in Himachal Pradesh, in the past, but B.N.H.S. in mid 1980s has estimated presence of up to 15-17 of this Species per sq. km in India. Survey also revealed that the behavior of the vultures seen in Keoladeo National Park, Bharatpur in Rajasthan was also observed in other parts including the state,indicating the prevalence of Neck-drooping.
