Kazi Dai was very accommodating and always ready to share his wealth of knowledge, and mentor budding bird watchers and naturalists.
In 1985, when I was stationed as a naturalist at Gaida Wildlife Camp, he visited Chitwan for a birding trip. Along a moist Chure river bed, we observed the flashy Sultan Tit, Black-crested Baza, Rufous Piculet, Red-headed Trogon. In Chitwan National Park, after observing a rare Bengal Florican in the grassland of Dumaria Phanta, a majestic Bengal Tiger appeared from the golden grass.
One of the noteworthy professional work we did together was documenting his ornithological knowledge during the Biodiversity Profiles Project, under the Department of National Park and Wildlife Conservation in 1995. Both of us also served as members of Environment Protection Council, chaired by the Prime Minister.
