Since 2016, the Tibet Autonomous Region Institute of Plateau Biology has discovered three new bird species in Tibet: the white-cheeked starling, the black-capped kingfisher, and the lesser black-backed gull.

According to currently known data, there are about 600 bird species distributed in Tibet. However, bird experts said that for Tibet, the current research data is still not comprehensive, and there is still a scientific gap in the study of diversity of migratory birds. This needs to be filled through lot of investigation and research work.
