rare birds records


European Black Redstart (Phoenicurus ochruros gibraltariensis)

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.

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

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?
