Common Raven: National Bird of Bhutan

National Bird of Bhutan

The national bird of Bhutan is Common Raven. Bhutan is one of the world’s most isolated countries. Because the country is located in the heart of the Himalayan mountains, and because its Government is pursuing a deliberate policy that it should remain so. Bhutan is thus even today almost completely unaffected by the modern development and works on visitors as a pristine medieval society, where only a few things have changed since the country became a Buddhist in the 8. century.
