Zaalaisky ridge, altitude 3800 m

Rare record and first photo-record of Snow Pigeon in Kyrgyzstan. Most recent records of Snow Pigeon are related to summer of 1985, when E.D.Shukurov during 5 days found 4 Pigeons in mountains of Alai ridge, and 3 ones in north slope of Chonalai ridge. Birds were observed in altitude 3000-3330 m. Nest with eggs was found by E.D.Shukurov at June 14, 1985 in canyon of northern slope of Chonalai ridge in altitude 3200 m. In Zaalai ridge S.V.Kulagin observed Snow Pigeon several years ago in Ichke Suu, close to Lenin Peak area, but he couldn't take photo of bird.

Sonkul

First and one only record in Kyrgyz Republic (and in all post-USSR area). Male in not-full breeding plumage was observed by group of Sweedinsh birdwatchers in coast of Sonkul lake. Probably bird made so long flight because a lot of rains in breeding range.

unidentified birds

Аскар Исабеков: Филипп, а есть фото, где видно ноги? Здесь на фото видны только пальцы, а нужна цевка (tarsus).

2019-11-11

Askar Isabekov: голова, особенно на втором фото, выглядит очень маленькой, и хвост короче, чем ширина крыла - это курганник. скорее всего мохноногий.

Philippe Campeau: По размера, я не думаю, что было перепелятник (большая птица была). А тетеревятник, может быть.

Алдияр Сапарбаев: С Buteo всегда полемика...

Philippe Campeau: Был в саду, прямо в Бишкеке. Думаю, что он Южная бормотушка...? Я его не слышал и не видел как он держит хвост. Постояно двигется.
