Majestically spreading their wings in the sky and traversing almost 5,600km from Mongolia, when the Amur falcons come to Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Assam, Nagaland and other parts of Northeast India, the people rejoice.

Manipur and Nagaland are particularly important as the Amur falcons mainly throng there. The villagers in the two states also consider the arrival of Amur falcons as the sign of goodwill and prosperity. Since the time immemorial, they had been coming and the people too had been rejoicing: the matter of a long tradition.
