Himalayan monal pair

The Himalayan monal is the national bird of Nepal. European natural historians often gave new names to the birds and animals they ‘discovered’ in different parts of the world. Brian Houghton Hodgson was one of the few that incorporated local names for species that were not yet documented in a European language. Examples include the Himalayan monal, derived from the Urdu ‘moonal’ (also known as ‘danphe’ in Nepali), and the Himalayan cutia, derived from the Nepali ‘khutya’.
