rare birds records


Striated Scops-Owl (Otus brucei)

© Oleg Belyalov
2017-05-31
Almaty region

Первая встреча буланой совки в Национальном парке «Алтын-Эмель». Токование наблюдалось на кордоне Мынбулак. Рулевые одной из птиц были заметно согнуты и рассучены, что указывает на пребывание птицы в дупле. Хоть гнездо и не было найдено, данные наблюдения указывают на гнездование. Самой восточной на сегодняшний день была встреча 24 мая 2002 г. в пойме р. Или у окончания хребта Малай-Сары, где отмечены голоса пары (Гаврилов, 2002). Данная находка отстоит ещё на 150 км восточнее.
