Аскар Исабеков: OK, I only confirmed your guess. Darren, you can move this series to the "Buteo rufinus" folder by the "edit" button.


2017-09-01. to photo # 05780000902 (Long-legged Buzzard)

Darren Bell: I did think myself Buteo rufinus. I am very familiar with Buteo Buteo, it is the commonest raptor in the part on England,where l live. This bird did seem to be larger than Buteo buteo.


2017-09-01. to photo # 05780000902 (Long-legged Buzzard)

Аскар Исабеков: Long-legged Buzzard (Buteo rufinus) in my opinion. Dark belly and rufous tinge of all feathers indicate to rufinus. In winter time there are a lot of Eastern Buzzards (B. japonicus and hybrids japonicus x vulpinus) in Almaty vicinity, these birds often [....]

2017-08-31. to photo # 05780000701 (Temminck's Stint)

Darren Bell: OK Askar, I agree Calidris temminkii. Calidris temminkii, was my second choice. Tibia looked long to me, thank you.


2017-08-31. to photo # 05780000704 (Temminck's Stint)

Аскар Исабеков: Calidris temminkii


2017-08-24. to photo # 05780000501 (Cinereous Vulture)

Darren Bell: Thank you, Askar.


2017-08-24. to photo # 05780000501 (Cinereous Vulture)

Аскар Исабеков: Agree to you


2017-08-24. to photo # 05780000501 (Cinereous Vulture)

Darren Bell: Aegypius monachus?


2017-08-24. to photo # 05780000401 (Lesser Grey Shrike)

Darren Bell: I agree, Lanius Minor.


2017-08-24. to photo # 05780000401 (Lesser Grey Shrike)

Олег Белялов: As it is not called Lanius exubitor pallidirostris, Lanius meridionalis pallidirostris, Lanius lathora pallidirostris - it will still remain Lanius minor


2017-08-23. to photo # 05780000401 (Lesser Grey Shrike)

Darren Bell: Thank you Askar for your help. I will look more closely, next time. I have already seen Lanius Minor a few times. And I have seen Lanius Excubitor a few times in England also. This bird did seem to be Larger than other Lanius Minor I have seen. Good [....]


2017-08-23. to photo # 05780000401 (Lesser Grey Shrike)

Аскар Исабеков: We consider Steppe Grey Shrike (Lanius pallidirostris) as species (please look here). Foreign researchers use L. (lahtora) pallidirostris or L. (meridionalis) pallidirostris scientific names. But this bird is juvenile Lanius minor of course. [....]


2017-08-23. to photo # 05780000401 (Lesser Grey Shrike)

Darren Bell: Surely Lanius Lahtora? It was not on your list.

rare birds records


Northern Hawk Owl (Surnia ulula ulula)

Poperechka river, Ridder, VKO

The first photo record of this subspecies on the site birds.kz.


Lesser White-fronted Goose (Anser erythropus)

2017-11-17

The second record in Semirechye. From November 17 to December 7 one Lesser White-fronted Goose and five White-fronted Geese were observed together at one of Karachingil lakes. Before this 3 birds had been met on March 9th of 2003 in the floodplain of Kopy near the Saz railway station (Karpov, Belyalov, Kovshar 2004).

Meadow Bunting (Emberiza cioides)

Aktau, Mangystau region

The first record on Mangyshlak. The nearest known record points are located too much to east: Karatau ridge (Nukusbekov, www.birds.kz; Chalikova, Kolbintsev, 2005) and the foothills of Talas Alatau (Belousov, www.birds.kz).


Blackcap (Sylvia atricapilla)

VKO Katon-Karagay

The easternmost record in Kazakhstan. During migration Blackcap mostly occurs in Western Kazakhstan. For a long time the easternmost record was the observation in Borovoe (Shtegman, 1934). In Kurgaldzhino birds were recorded both in spring and autumn migration (Koshkin, 2017). In Russia this species distributes in east up to Tomsk and Kemerovo oblast (Ryabitsev, 2014; Vasilchenko, 2004). In China first Blackcap was recorded in 2012 in Kashi (Guo H., Ma M., 2013), also birds were later observed at November 21st and December 29th of 2013 (www.xinjiang.birds.watch). Probably the occurring of Blackcaps so far to east relates to the new wintering spots of the eastern populations of this species.
