We report the second photographic evidence of Temminck’s Tragopan Tragopan temminckii from Bhutan. Inhabiting warm broadleaved forest at an elevation of 2,952m, the species photo captured in a camera trap was much westward than its previous record, indicating westward range expansion of this rare and elusive bird.
