The second record of the species on the territory of Kazakhstan. Observed by a group of 6 ornithologists on the eastern coast of the Aral Sea on May 11-12, 2022 and on the northern coast on May 12-13, 2022, where, according to S. Baskakova, it was especially numerous - several males singing at the same time on clayey chinks. For the first time this species was recorded on May 9, 2018 in Mangistau in the Karagie depression near the Ashibulak spring (see the site gallery).

The northernmost record of the Trumpeter Finch on the territory of Kazakhstan. A few more southern records are known: on the territory of Mangystau, on artesians near the village of Kanshengel, both in nesting and non-nesting time. Also recently, in the Turkestan region in the Karatau mountains in the eastern part of the Kyzylkum desert, on May 9-10, 2021, two pairs of the Trumpeter Finch and an unfinished nest, subsequently abandoned, were found (Fedorenko, 2022).

Aktau, Mangystau

Rare record to western part of Kazakhstan. Prior to this, two birds were observed in Kenderli on May 6, 2009 (Neve et al., 2010), one bird - in the northern Caspian on April 10, 2015 (Karpov, 2015).

The first registration in Central Kazakhstan and the farthest record to the east from the range and, possibly, the most northern one. In Kazakhstan, the Semi-collared Flycatcher occurs on migration off the coast of the Caspian Sea.
