Urban Birding. Desert Warbler.

2017-03-31 | Askar Isabekov

Hour-and-a-half birding with beginners in Republic Square. I hope that beginners were satisfied, but I was very satisfied because we found the Desert Warbler almost in the center of the city. I never seen Desert Warblers in Almaty, and I am sure nobody seen it here. All other birds of bushes were expected: two Turkestan Shrikes, three Isabelline Shrikes, Bluethroat, Chaffinches, Tree Sparrow and common residents. Carrion Crows probably are finishing the nest reconstruction, we saw Crow with some pieces of sintepon in bill, one piece of sintepon fall from bill to grass. Female Sparrowhawk was reconstructing old nest too, male was not observed. The first in this spring Wood Pigeon flew by.Because beginners didn't notice how was time I can assume that the initiation to birdwatching was successful list of birds [...... read more ]

В поисках морянки.

2017-03-30 | Serg Silan

Глядя на фотострельбу наших южан захотелось весны.но в наших краях хотя и потеплело.но еще очень много снега и перелетных птиц пока мало.Доехал до плотины Бухтарминской ГЭС и прошел по берегу до Серебрянска....Изменений больших пока нет.Основные среди водоплавающих -гоголя, появилась перелетная кряква,и значительно больше,чем зимой стало большого крохаля.Последние два года,Иртыш весной облюбовали огари.Если в прошлом году встретилась лишь пара,то в этом году их уже больше десятка.Морянка встретилась на том же месте,где я ее обнаружил 19 марта.Были [...... read more ]

Прилёт птиц

2017-03-30 | Maria Demina

Наконец-то дождалась перелётных птиц в городе. Утром на крыше детского сада пела маскированная трясогузка. На центральной набережной пела зеленушка, подойти не удалось- птица улетела в парк. Похоже это тот же зеленух, которого снимал Игорь Латыш, а я то надеялась, что их уже будет больше. Порадовал полевой жаворонок, с песней пролетая над Енисеем. А ещё выше в небе парила пара чёрных коршунов, позже видела ещё одного. Погода жаркая и вылезло ещё больше разных насекомых. Появилась бабочка траурница и первые муравьи.На Татыше надеялась увидеть ушастых [...... read more ]

What you can see in the city right now?

2017-03-28 | Askar Isabekov

One or one and half hour is the time need to urban birding. Two days I had birding in Dendropark and in Republic Square in Almaty. Now you can meet familiar (often) or unfamiliar birdwatchers in the urban birding spots. In 26th of March in Dendropark (aka President's Park) I met Gennady and Elena Dyakins, we together had some birding. Black-headed Gull was surprise for us, but Pied and Northern Weatears, and Pheasant were predictable but nice records. Bramblings and Chaffinches are yet in park. Magpies are building the nests. Next day I visited Republic Square. At first birds were invisible. Only Isabelline Shrike didn't hide. But when I carefully observed bushes and under the spruce trees I find other birds. I again saw Bramblings-Chaffinches, common Great Tits, Blackbirds and also season guests – Black-throated Accentors and Eversmann's Redstart. Soon, probably after several weeks the urban birding will become very interesting. But some of today records (for example Gull) is interesting [...... read more ]

ПО РЕКЕ ИЛЕТЬ

2017-03-27 | Albert Lastukhin

А.М. Исаков ПО РЕКЕ ИЛЕТЬ Пятница, 24 марта 2017 год, Чебоксары. Время ближе к вечернему, что то около 15 часов. На выходные уже давно было запланировано у нас совершить сплав по реке Илеть, а мы с Ластухиным все еще не знаем точно, сколько человек поедет на сплав. Так всегда бывает - у одного заболело горло, у другого на сносях беременная корова, а третий неожиданно включил заднюю скорость, и в итоге на сплав придется ехать вдвоем, что впрочем, нисколько не умаляет желание быстрее добраться на вожделенную реку, единственную и неповторимую в своем роде, [...... read more ]

Sorbulak

2017-03-25 | Askar Isabekov

The last day before the rainy week me and Sanzhar Abdikhalyk uded to go to Sorbulak. The main target of trip is migrating birds. The first stopping we made over the Karaoi village, where he little finches were singing the songs in roadside thickets. I thing we saw more the one hundred Bramblings, Chaffinches, Grey-headed Goldfinches, Linnets. Further we watched these birds many times and numerous in single trees.In the water of Little Sorbulak there are a lot of Ducks and Coots, in the second reservoir we counted 3-4 thousands of water birds concentrated in the center of reservoir. In the gulf of first reservoir we watched hundreds of Cormorants in breeding plumage. In other spots we saw the breeding games of Great Crested Grebes. Of shorebirds we saw only Little Ringed Plovers which are in flocks yet. The Wagtails were a lot (Masked, White, Cintrines Wagtails), also we saw Water Pipits and Shrikes. In spite of prohibition of hunting we permanently heard the sounds of shots. When we [...... read more ]

Taldykurgan. Day 2.

2017-03-23 | Askar Isabekov

Second day almost duplicated the first one. In morning we visited ponds, then went to Karatal. The morning ground is frozen, we easy go by all of roads and trails. In the ponds we watched the same list of birds but I saw the Water Rail in additional. Also I shortly noticed the Rail-sized bird with rounded wings looked like little Bittern in colour, I have no any guess appropriated for season and locations. Probably if we had more time for observation of ponds we can to take photo of Rail (we tried but unsuccessfully) and can to watch the daily start of migration. But we didn't have much of free time and we went to Karatal but to the spot located higher than yesterday one. Here was very nice, weather was very sunny and some windy. We again watched Black Stork, Great White Egrets. Eversmann's and Guldenstadt's Redstarts. Also we watched the migration of Eagles and Kites. I was feeling sure that I can just stay in one point and watch a lot of birds which be appeared from all of sides. [...... read more ]
