Philippe Campeau: Dear Reinhard,If this is still useful to you, you can try the road into the foothills that goes to Gornaya Mayevka. A bit closer, not massive numbers, but you should definitely see some in the fields.Regards,Philippe

2022-06-20. to photo # 00670023006 (Crimson-winged Finch)

Jérémie Berlioux: Thanks! Few people pass by Jumgal. I guess that explains why it is so rarely reported It was also spotted in the Chon Alay on 2017 (https://ebird.org/checklist/S38385454).

Michael Westerbjerg Andersen: Apparently the only location where the CWF is registered (so far) in Kyrgyzstan. It’s fairly common in the area, but usually not easy to get such great images! Great!

Анна Ясько: Здесь однозначно не зимняк. А вот куда его? Два варианта - восточный канюк и гибрид мохноногого курганника с обыкновенным. Честно говоря, затруднительно [....]


Анна Ясько: Возможно, хохлатый жаворонок, клюв довольно длинный.


Philippe Campeau: Как обычно, спасибо за помочь! Если точно садовая, было бы классно :)
