Eurasian Jay (Garrulus glandarius)

2017-10-22
karabalik

Редкий залетный вид для Кустанайской области. Известны встречи залетных птиц в Наурзумском заповеднике осенью 1974 и 1993 гг. (Брагин, Брагина, 2002).


European Black Redstart (Phoenicurus ochruros gibraltariensis)

© Yuriy Malkov
2016-08-12

Первая регистрация гнездования Phoenicurus ochruros gibraltariensis в Казахстане! До этого отмечалась на пролете на Мангышлаке, Северном Прикаспии, в Северном Казахстане (Наурзум) и Центральном Казахстане (Кургальджино). Европейская горихвостка-чернушка населяет юг Европы. В последние десятилетия эта форма расселилась почти до Урала. Территориальные птицы отмечались в середине лета в Южно-Уральском заповеднике и его окрестностях (Ластухин и др., 2016), а также в окрестностях Екатеринбурга (Ляхов, 2014). Известны случаи успешного гнездования в Западной Сибири: в Тюмени (Граждан, 2010) и Новосибирске (Жимулев и др, 2011). Данная находка дополняет общую картину продвижения европейского подвида на восток.

Александр Катунцев: Самка Ph.ph.samamisicus.

2017-10-19

Анна Ясько: Кто из них малый? По этому фото не различимо.

2017-10-17

Анна Ясько: Альберт, есть ли фото, где видны пестрины на боках? Чисто визуально, я бы сказала, что это лесной конек: клюв довольно толстый и основание подклювья
[....]

2017-10-15

Анна Ясько: Похож, только тот взрослый (и все же непонятно у него с цевками, неужели все же оперенные?). Может это та пара начудила? Шучу, но вдруг?

2017-09-21

Олег Белялов: Да, Анна, в этом случае нельзя и зелёную исключать. Иногда светлая полоса едва различима, а очень ярко смотрится видимо только у первогодков.
