Александр Катунцев: скорей степной их было четыре птицы . Долековата кружили...


2022-09-29. to photo # 03060451801 (Black-Necked Grebe)

Игорь Фефелов: Черношейные без сомнения.


2022-09-29. to photo # 03060451402 (Steppe Eagle)

Игорь Фефелов: Снизу бы его. Но, думаю, это в само деле с большей вероятностью степной, чем большой подорлик формы fulvescens.

2022-09-29. to photo # 03060451401 (Steppe Eagle)

Геннадий Дякин: Разве не степняк?
