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.

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).

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).

Rare vagrant in Mangyshlak, and in the whole territory of the western part of Kazakhstan. The closest breeding spots of White Stork are in Dagestan (300 km from the record point) and in Iran, in the southern coast of the Caspian Sea (850 km). Occasionally nesting attempts were noted in the southeast of Turkmenistan (Belousov, 1990). In both cases we are talking about birds of European subspecies. The nearest breeding ranges of Turkestan White Stork (Ciconia ciconia asiatica) are in Khorezm (800 km from the record point), Bukhara and Samarkand oases.

NE Bay of Maly Tengiz



New species for Kazakhstan. Two adult birds were observed in the NE bay of Tengiz lake together with Greater Flamingo. 10 of September these birds were recorded by R.Urazaliev too. Afterwards, Ruslan Urazaliev watching the video shot by Alena Shmalenko (Koshkina) of June 14, 2009 in a large number of Greater Flamingos found a bird, whose size and coloring did not leave any doubts that it was a Lesser Flamingo. Thus, the record in 2009 became the first documented evidence. This is third record for all former USSR area. The first record of Lesser Flamingo was at 3rd of August 2007 in Limanskoe, Odesskaya oblast, Ukraine (Rednikov K.A.). The main breeding range of this species is located in eastern regions of Equatorial Africa in the salt lakes of Kenia and Tanzania. Also there are some colonies in the coast of Persian Gulf, and in Sambhar lake in Indian state Radjastan. The closest breeding spots are located at 3500 km to south from the record in Kazakhstan. It’s interesting that this species mostly feeds the Cyanobacteria and Diatom plants, unlike of breeding in Tengiz lake Greater Flamongo (Phoenicopterus roseus) which feeds mostly by Artemia salina.

The third record of species in Sorbulak. "In reality Bar-tailed Godwit in the Semirechye is probably just an occasional and extremely rare visitor, and gets here only getting lost during migration" wrote by V.N Shnitnikov in the book. "Birds of the Semirechie", 1949, p. 151. Shnitnikov knew one specimen from Issyk-Kul from the collections of Almashi in 1900. At the time of the publication of the second part of "Birds of Kazakhstan" in 1962, where the essays about waders were written by I.A. Dolgushin, there were no data for the southern, southeastern and eastern regions. In Sorbulak one bird was ringed during the study of migrations in 1970-80. (Ring Center database). The second case was in July 21, 2008, the young bird was found dead of poisoning by the toxins of blue-green algae (Karpov, Belyalov, 2008). Another record occurred on August 4, 2004 at the Teke reservoir in the Kazakhstan part of the Central Tien Shan.
