Harlequin Duck in Ust-Kamenogorsk.

2016-12-18 | Askar Isabekov

Five day ago, 13 of December was very sunny therefore I went to the birding to Strelka after noon. I took photos of bright sunlit Ducks, some time followed Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, shot three or four Dippers, and twice tried to take White-tailed Sea-Eagle in Ulba river. Two interesting records. First one: perhaps due to warm weather one of Dipper began to sing the song. Second one: flying Sea-Eagle flushed Goldeneyes, and latters move from the far part of gulf to the near one. When I came back to home I continue my work and don’t select and view the photos. But I did it yesterday (17 of December), and I found the Harlequin Duck in some photos.Of course today I went to Strelka right in morning, and I was lucky guy. Firstly, I was in Strelka right between morning and day snowfalls. Secondly, as soon I arrived to Strelka and took binocular as the flock of about 30 Goldeneyes comes to the water beside me. One Harlequin Duck was together with Goldeneyes. About one hour I was taking photos [...... read more ]

India: West Bengal - Sikkim

2016-12-04 | Gennadiy Dyakin

Под конец 2016 года группа казахстанских бердвочеров совершила очередную зарубежную поездку. На 1-м фото думаю многие узнают знакомые лица. Опять в Индию, на этот раз штаты Сикким и Западная Бенгалия, в основном гималайская часть. В индийских Гималаях мы уже были , но в западной части (серия репортажей Аскара начиная с этого: http://birds.kz/v2blogentry.php?l=ru&a=20150105000101). Теперь же решили проверить восточную. Наш маршрут получился следующий: 26.11.16. Delhi - Bagdogra (West Bengal)27.11.16. Rissium Forest - Pedong (West Bengal)28.11.16. Paiengaon Forest - Rissium Forest - Rishop (West Bengal)29.11.16. Rissium Forest - Rangpo Forest (West Bengal) - Aritar (Sikkim)30.11.16. [...... read more ]

Запоздалые!

2016-12-02 | Malik Nukusbekov

Запоздалые!По моим наблюдениям это очень редкий случай, что журавли-красавки летят так поздно. Обычно они через нас пролетает с конца августа и по сентябрь-октябрь. Предполагаю, что эта самка красавки имела позднюю кладку, и пока ее птенец достаточно окреп, чтобы долететь до мест зимовки, уже наступила поздняя осень.Как они переждали прошлые холода, я и представить не могу. У нас в данное время неустойчивая погода, скорее всего, они переждут непогоду где-то недалеко. В ближайшие дни и на следующей неделе синоптики обещают нам сильный ветер, дождь [...... read more ]

Uzunagach, Almaty oblast.

A rare vagrant species for Kazakhstan. On February 27 and 28, two birds kept in the thickets of silverberries near the village of Uzynagash (43 km west of Almaty). This is the sixth record of the Dusky Thrush for Kazakhstan. Records of this species are known for the Syrdarya, near the village of Dzhulek (October 16, 1927), near Almaty (February 16, 2013), as well as Ust-Kamenogorsk (October 14 and 16, 2016), Kurgaldzhino (May 7, 2020).

Almaty, Aitykov str.

The first record of Pygmy Cormorant in Almaty in general and, in particular, during the winter. The expansion of the Pygmy Cormorant to the northeast concerns not only the probable nesting area, but also the wintering grounds. The nearest winter finds are Sorbulak and Taldykorgan (winter 2017-18, one bird each). In this connection, it is worth noting a significant number of birds in the Almaty (40) and Sorbulak (20) records this winter.

Анна Ясько: Сложно сказать, хохотунья или барабинская. Птица еще не во взрослом наряде, это усложняет задачу.
