GUWAHATI/DIMAPUR: With early winter coming in, means a time to seek fortune for many villagers. As Amur falcons migrate from Siberia, the villagers hunt them in large number and earn a lot in Nagaland and parts of Manipur.

However, if environmentalists have their way this year, those villagers in Nagaland or elsewhere in the North East region will be disappointed during this winter as their plans to ‘harvest’ on migratory birds may be restricted.
