Satellite-tagged Amur falcon from Manipur lost in Zambia

By CORRESPONDENT

IMPHAL, Jan 3 - The satellite-tagged female Amur falcon, which was on its migration route, has been lost after it reached Zambia in South Africa since December 14 last year, according to Wildlife Institute of India (WII) scientist Dr R Suresh Kumar.

The lost satellite-tagged Amur falcon, named after Manipur district �Tamenglong�, was last located in the North Luangwa National Park of Zambia, he said.

However, Dr Kumar felt that the reason for the failure to receive any signal from the bird could be due to �technical failure�. He, however, ruled out the possibility of the bird getting killed there.

�Longleng,� another satellite-tagged female Amur falcon named after the Nagaland district, continues to be active and has reached close to its last year�s roosting site, said Dr Kumar, who had tagged many birds since the last few years.

�Longleng� was satellite-tagged in October 2016 in Nagaland, while �Tamenglong�, along with a male falcon �Manipur�, were tagged in the first week of November last year to study their migratory routes.
