Ile Alatau National Park.

Today I specially gone to mountains to photograph Nutcracker. Nutcrackers live in high mountains, only once I saw Nutcracker in the bottom of a fir forest. It's usual habitat much above. On road to fir groves I saw only Coal Tits, Treecreepers and Goldcrests. In high mountains there are no much birds, but some ones are present. Above in I snows saw only Mistle Thrushes, and below in the border of a fir forest - one Great Grey Shrike and one Cinereous Vulture. And certainly, expected Nutcracker. [...... read more ]

Birds have flown almost all. At least there were nobody on the lake. Neither Ruddy Shellducks nor Lapwings. Roadside bushes aren't so populated as at summer. I saw only of Great Tits and Tree Sparrows. But these are our winter inhabitants. Generally there were no many birds, only Rooks and Jackdaws. I saw two raptors - one Common Buzzard and one Steppe Eagle. Popular some weeks ago Kites have migrated. [...... read more ]

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
