A rare record for the Kazakh part of Altai. In total, three summer finds of Zoothera varia are known, concentrated on the Ivanovsky and Tigiretsky ridges: a singing male on June 13, 2003 (Panov, Karpov 2003), a juvenile on July 7, 2019, and a young bird on August 7, 2020 (Bolbotov 2020), and only one autumn - September 19, 2010 in Ust-Kamenogorsk (Loginova, Loginov 2011). The next record on May 9, 2021 on the southern slope of the Ulba ridge suggests that it is settling in the direction of the Bukhtarma Valley. (N.N.Berezovikov, written communication).
