Dear B-A,

For those who may be considering a birding trip to Nepal or the Himalaya region 
in general, this may be a useful resource.

> have now made this freely available on the Internet (hosted by Mark Turin's 
> Digital Himlaya website).
> This is a significant resource and Carol and Tim are to be congratulated and 
> thanked for this generous act. A lot of information important to bird 
> conservation is hidden away in old, out-of-print publications and unpublished 
> 'grey' literature. The Internet is the ideal medium for making this 
> information more readily available. This can, however, entail a lot of work, 
> scanning printed documents into pdf files or (even better) using Optical 
> Character Recognition to convert scanned images into electronic text. I would 
> encourage anyone who has the opportunity to do the same for other countries 
> in the region and publicise the resulting websites via OB.
