The first photography of the bird of this subspecies and the fourth record in Kazakhstan. Since the previous records more than one hundred years have passed. No breeding records in the Kazakhstan part of Altai. The nearest breeding spots there are in the North Chu Ridge on Russian territory, in 150 km to the north-east of the place of this record. Once catched in the winter in the area of Katon-Karagai. Apparently this subspecies was described in 1904 by this specimen. The nesting of this taxon was supposed in Saur, where it was recorded in summertime of 1904 by P.P Sushkin and in 1907 by V.A.Khakhlov (Dementiev, 1937, Kovshar, 1974, Gavrilov, 1999). No new records reported up to the present time (Starikov, 2006).

Zailiyskiy Alatau, Almaty region



Rare record. 50 years ago only six records of vagrants were known for Kazakhstan (Gavrilov, 1970). Later, the breeding was established, and fledglings were recorded in the Zailiysky Alatau (Gavrilov, 1974) and in Kungei Alatau (Zhuyko, 1980). Nests not found in Kazakhstan until today. Now there are several spots in Zailiyskiy Alatau where it's possible to observe this cautious bird, but mostly just typical song could be hearable.

2015-08-12
Almaty region



Record of fledgling, indicating to the breeding of this species in a new point of the Northern Tian Shan located at 100 km to the east from the previously known breeding spots in the Trans-Ili Alatau. The juvenile Goshawk was recorded on the vicinity of Zhylysai by Moscow ornithologists E. Koblik and V. Ilyashenko; bird was photographed too. Apparently juvenile left the nest in the spruce groves of the nearest slope of the Kuuluktau Range, which are located near the village. For a long time it was considered the Goshawk does not breed in Tian Shan, but observed here only on migrating and wintering (Korelov, 1962). First brood was recorded in the Big Almaty gorge of the Trans-Ili Alatau in 1982 (Korelov, Pfander, 1983). Later broods were recorded in 1996 in the gorge of the Turgen river (Gubin, 2009), in the end of 1990s in the Kaskelen Gorge (O. Belyalov, oral report), and in recent years again in the Great Almaty Gorge (P. Pfander, oral report).

2015-07-20



Little owl (Athene noctua) June 16 - November 12, 2015 – Karabalyk village, Kostanay region (Yuri Malkov). The second breeding record of species in the northern part of Kazakhstan. Breeding point at 53˚00 N was confirmed by regularly photos of breeding birds. Recently, in 2009, the breeding was recorded in the North-Kazakhstan region at 55˚00 N. (Zuban et al., 2010). The new breeding spot was located at 500 km to west of the previous one. The breeding range of this species bypasses the central and northern regions of Kazakhstan in far to south, penetrating to the north only in mountain groups of the Kazakh Plateau. Previously considered the northern border of the distribution of the Little Owl is the 42˚00 N. in the mountains of Kotur-Kyzyltau where it was recorded by I.A. Dolgushin (Gavrin, 1962). In 1963 it was recorded more far to north in the mountains of Kyzyltau (50˚30 N), south of Bayanaul (Cheltsov-Bebutov, 1978). The closest breeding spots of Little Owl in Western Siberia are the areas of the Altaisky Krai, in the similar latitude of this record (Ryabitsev, 2014).

Asian Short-toed Lark (Calandrella cheleensis leucophaea)

Sorbulak lake, Almaty region



The second photo registration of the species in Sorbulak. Two birds were photographed at the same place, where one bird was observed previously on October 25, 2014 (A. Kovalenko, V. Fedorenko, www.birds.kz). Beafore this records two birds were shot on Sorbulak on November 22, 1978 by Gavrilov E.I . This birds collected in the Institute of Zoology in Alma-Ata; there are 35 specimen in total, 31of them are from the valley of the Ili River and the immediate vicinity, and by one of the lower reaches of the Chu and Syrdarya rivers (Belyalov, 2004). Recent years this Lark almost disappeared from the field of view of ornithologists. Should be noted the taxonomic status of the species still raises doubts, since its range is formed by the isolated patches within the huge range of the Lesser Short-toed Lark (Calandrella rufescens), which is strange case even for subspecies. Perhaps V.L. Bianki was right when found the Asian Short-toed Lark is only a color variation of the Lesser Short-toed Lark, does not have a special area of ​​distribution, and is confined to the special type of landscape as salt march (Bianki, 1905).
