    Smile Jujurana - The Western Horned Tragopan



    The Western Horned Tragopans (locally known as Jujurana) are medium-sized mountain pheasants, possibly the most colorful of the pheasants. They are among the most arboreal of pheasants.

    Jujurana as they call the western Tragopan in Kullu district of Himachal Pradesh means King Of The Birds. According to a local legend god created this beautiful pheasant with the help of the most beautiful feathers of each bird in the universe. The name relates to the grandeur and beauty of Jujurana that it enjoys among the local villagers. It is known as Payara in Kinnaur; Jyazi in Bushahr and Fulgar in Chamba and Kangra districts of Himachal Pradesh.

    Smile Distribution



    The world distribution of Jujurana is limited to parts of Pakistan, Jammu & Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh. Its confirmed eastern limit of distribution is Himachal-Uttarakhand boundary at the junction of Kinnaur (HP) and Uttarkashi (Uttarakhand) districts. This pheasant has been well documented from the Great Himalayan National Park, and Rupi-Bhabha and Daranghati wildlife sanctuary in Himachal Pradesh. However there is no confirmed record of Jujurana occurring in wild from adjoining districts of Uttarkashi in Uttarakhand hills.

    The latest report of Jujurana comes from the surveys in the Satluj and Beas catchments. The Thar Jot site near Daranghati Wildlife Sanctuary is the first definite site of Jujurana. The Sarahan-Bushahr pheasantry in Shimla district houses the only existing breeding pairs of Jujurana in captivity anywhere in the world. The species has only once been breed in captivity.

    The Western Horned Tragopan is included in the Schedule I of the Wildlife Protection Act offering fullest legal protection and the State Govt. of Himachal Pradesh has declared Jujurana as its State Bird as Himachal happens to be the stronghold of the species and probably harbors the only viable population of Jujuran in the wild in the entire world.
