2020-11-28 | Askar Isabekov

Trip to Sorbualk. Yesterday weather forecast promised rain and snow of 94% probability, but nobody paniced.

Здорово, что авторы фильма не путают названия птиц, а еще в конце в титрах показывают все 755 видов, которые за год увидел Бостик. К обеду прилетел в Актау, и прямо около аэропорта достал камеру, потому что между редкими и низкорослыми карагачами увидел группу кормящихся птиц, среди которых были и дрозды - рябинники и, что интереснее, певчие.
