Islamabad: Sarus cranes, the world's tallest flying bird, is back in Pakistan after more than a decade, wildlife experts have said.

A pair sighted in Nagarparkar in Sindh province this year has given hope to wildlife enthusiasts that the rare bird may become part of Pakistan's landscape once again.

"Khyber Pakhtunkhwa tops the list where these birds are hunted on a large-scale followed by Balochistan and Punjab," said wildlife conservationist Ashiq Ahmed Khan.
