Jordan’s lightning is a rare bird in the evergreen forest

Jordan’s lightning is a rare bird in the evergreen forest: Almost all the forests of the country are now in crisis! Wildlife, including many birds sheltering in the forest, has become even more endangered. No one knows when and how this crisis will end. Wildlife that relies on forests will not be well until this crisis is over.

Let us make one of our pledges to celebrate 50 years of independence – we will restore the health of all the protected forests in the country. I will ensure the habitat and settlement of wild animals. We will fill various species of forests and fruit trees with the existence of our precious natural forest.

Sad to say – Jordan’s lightning is an endangered bird of prey in such an endangered forest. The destruction of large forest trees has severely hampered his way of life. Because he is a bird sitting on the trunk of a tree. He needs a big tree. But big trees are being uprooted from all-natural and protected forests.


It is never difficult to see the tall trees in the forest, but it is not difficult to see the crest above the head, it is the lightning of Jordan. He has a crest on his head. That crested beauty sets him apart from all birds. Like remembering the beauty of the crest.

Inam Al Haq, a renowned bird researcher, author and founder of the Bangladesh Bird Club, said: These are mixed evergreen forest birds. They are not found anywhere in the country except in the forests of Sylhet and Chittagong. The number of Jordanian lightning that survives in the midst of the relentless destruction of our natural forests is an invaluable resource for us. I myself am overwhelmed by a Jordanian lightning. ‘

Referring to the place of receipt, he said, ‘Satchhari National Park, Remakalenga Wildlife Sanctuary, Lauyachhara National Park, Dudh Pukuria Dhopachhari Wildlife Sanctuary, these one or two small forests still survive somehow. But not more than that. These are all small forests, fragmented forests; Absolutely destroyed and somehow standing. This is where this bird lives. The Jordanian lightning is the bird of our country. They stay in our country all year round. They build nests and hatch chicks. ‘

About the food of the bird, he said, ‘They eat insects and bugs. Due to the destruction of the natural environment of all these forests and the massive influx of tourists, its food has also been greatly reduced. Among the lightning species in our country, we can still see this Jordanian lightning in the mountain forests. Although its number is extremely low. But I can’t see the other lightning. It can be said that Jordan’s budget is relatively good.

According to Bangladesh Bird Club, Jordan’s falcon is a rare resident bird of our country. They are 48 cm long and 30.5 cm long. The body is brown. The tip of the vertical crest behind the head is white. They are like cats in a loud voice: ‘P-au’ or ‘Kikiya … Kikiya’ is called like this.

They do not live on human waste like kites and vultures. Eats only forest insects, insects, small reptiles. They are totally dependent on forest food. As a result, since we have almost destroyed the forest, the birds that depend on the forest are also being destroyed, said the ornithologist.
