Сокол балобан.

2013-07-25 | Malik Nukusbekov

Спустя некоторое время сокол балобаны вновь появились в наших краях.В этом году я нашел одно гнездо.Балобаны гнездились в прежних оставленных ими гнездах.В гнезде вылупились пятеро птенцов.Трое из них самки,а двое самцы.В течение двух месяцев я вел за ними наблюдение.В целях сохранности гнезда,во время наблюдение я нигде не афишировал этот материал,и никому не говорил.Все пять птенцов благополучно покинули гнездо.Я думаю,что сейчас они на равнинах.Сейчас они обучают своих птенцов к самостоятельной жизни.Я очень надеюсь,что в следующем году [...... read more ]


Columbiformes Алматы

2013-07-24 | Sanzhar Abdikhalyk

Просто небольшая заметка о голубях Алматы ...Каждое утро, идя на работу у меня есть небольшое развлечение ... считать количество видов голубей, которых я увижу за ежедневную пятиминутную прогулку ... На моей улице (Мичурино - 10 км на юго-восток от города) гнездится малая и кольчатая горлица ... В пределах двух кварталов по паре каждой ... И та и та совершенно не пугливы ... Подойти можно на метр. Но кольчатые кажутся значительно более привязанные к одному месту .. Их вижу каждое утро ... Малых вижу через день. Возможно улетают кормиться на другую улицу ) Что [...... read more ]


Off-topic/just some smiles on a festive day

2013-07-24 | Sanzhar Abdikhalyk

Астану обживают нехарактерные животные «В нынешнем году вообще наблюдается нечто странное, – говорит эколог Алексей Гладков. – Совы-сипухи угнездились практически в центре города. То же самое с жаворонками – птицами совершенно не городскими.отсюда:http://total.kz/society/2013/07/19/astanu_obzhivayut_neharakternye_/#begin_st [...... read more ]


Achievement

2013-07-24 | Askar Isabekov

I have a guess that our base of photos is the largest in former USSR, and probably is largest project in the world related one country. I created the statistic of site to the Kazakhstan’s Book of Records (the creators of the book sent me the request) and got the following results: we photographed 444 species of the birds, it is 88% of total species observed in territory of Kazakhstan, there are 59995 photos (19620 series), and 137 videos of 100 species of birds in site. One of the analytic sites called birds.kz as the largest site in the KZ domain area. Probably it was true but now I think the photo-sites and file depositories more likely are bigger than our site (today about 15 Gb of information, only texts without photos is 15 Mb), but probably among the thematic sites we are the leader with the large gap from the second place.I wrote this preamble because today the fifth of upload photos will be the 60000 (sixty thousandth) anniversary. Though not all of our photos have the scientific [...... read more ]


Kimasar gorge, Ile Alatau National Park.

2013-07-21 | Askar Isabekov

I expected the overcast, partially rainy day. But I can’t change plan to trip to Kimasar. In spite of my expectation the weather was not partially rainy but full rainy, partially overcast. Rain started almost immediately I came to mouth of gorge and was so powerful that I was forced to hide under the spruce-tree. Further rain regularly was becoming heavier and only sometimes easier. This weather didn’t give me possibility to watch birds which were a bit though I reached the juniper belt. Of the significant birds I can mention only juvenile Blue Whistling Thrush I noticed before the rain, and two juveniles of Carrion Crow pecked the bark of spruce-tree.When I was backing to home I met the man who heavy impressed me. He was very calm, intelligent-looking man without bag but with umbrella and gun! I wanted to ask him – why you are with gun? But I didn’t do it, because I afraid men with gun. This spring in Alakol lake I heard the story about two groups of hunters fired on each other. [...... read more ]


Red-footed falcon Astana

2013-07-21 | Sanzhar Abdikhalyk

Кобчиков раньше видел только ближе к Курно, поэтому вчера сильно обрадовался, когда увидел самца, сидящего на проводах на повороте на Косшы (трасса в аэропорт Астаны) в 10 км от центра города. Сегодня, в 22:45, приехав в аэропорт, чтобы вернуться в алмату - наблюдал, как три кобчика летали вокруг фонаря, охотясь на привлеченных светом насекомых. Вспомнились чеглоки, делающие то же самое возле прожекторов центрального бассейна в ате [...... read more ]

Космостанция

2013-07-20 | Vassiliy Fedorenko

По прошлым выходным отчет не писал, так как рассказать особо нечего, все довольно скушно. Решил написать хотя бы о нынешней поездке на космостанцию. Правда, и в этот раз похвастать нечем.На прошлых выходных, на космостанцию я не собирался и заехал туда, в общем-то, случайно. К тому же был один, потому пробежался быстренько и встретил только гималайского вьюрка и горихвостку. На скалах было совершенно пусто и тихо. Тоня давно хотела туда попасть, поэтому на этот раз, выбрав согласно прогнозу благоприятный день, снова поехали туда уже пораньше. Но [...... read more ]

Panorama Pass.

2013-07-20 | Askar Isabekov

Weather is changed every 15 minutes from cloudy to sunny and back. I reached the Panorama pass with expecting of Brandt’s Mountain Finch which was observed here two week ago by my wife. I didn’t find it but further I know that it is need to search it in the rocks which I bypassed. Away from the rocks and in the right slope of the Chimbulachka peak I saw mostly Mistle Thrushes and Hodgson’s Finches. Mistle Thrushes were rather careful, they approached close but immediately flew out. Finches also were shy, I took photos of only two birds, one of them behaved as near the nest, not flew far and sounded alarm calls. Also I saw three Finches together, I didn’t recognize colour of all birds, but probably it was brood with adult bird. Near the spots of snow one juvenile Rufous-tailed Rock Thrush looked for the food. The couple of Himalayan Accentors filled beaks by caterpillars finding them in the grass. By the way beaks were filled in very short time. In the stones I saw Stoat which was [...... read more ]

Kolsai Lakes.

2013-07-14 | Askar Isabekov

Three days tour to the Kolsay lakes with colleagues.12 of July. Because tour was not birdwatching but teambuilding I knew that bus in which we drove from Almaty to Kolsay never stop for birds; so I slept until Zhalanash. I think (or I believe) nothing significant was during the road. From Zhalanash to Saty road passes the very scenical foothills; from the car’s window I noticed Rollers, flocks of Rosy Starlings, Turkestan Shrikes, Rock Buntings, Linnets, Grey-headed Goldfinches and probably other birds. Of the birds of prey I noticed only Black Kites. There are a lot of Rooks, Common Starlings and Mynas in Saty village. Then we drove to the first of Kolsai lakes, and two hour hiked to the second one. In the moment of leaving the bus in first lake the weather changed from sunny to overcast and rainy, therefore hiking was under the little rain, which however didn’t disturb to watch Common Roseficnhes, Hume’s Warblers and fledglings of Blue-capped Redstarts. Then it was night, that’s [...... read more ]
