Philippe Campeau: Специалистый по хишным птицам, помочь пожалуйста! Эта птица наверное полевой Лунь. Ее видели в Ала-Арче, в горах (2300м). Сейчас зима. А то фотка [....]


Сергей Л. Волков: Имя не полностью отразилось. Предыдущий комментарий мой.


Ирина Романовская: Этот жаворонок летал со стайкой рогатых жаворонков. Возможно, солончаковый?


Philippe Campeau: Ha ha! This is very funny, we were so convinced it was a short-toed that I did not even look at the photo. It is indeed a pipit. Legs very black and ''moustache'' not visible (water), but very streaked on the flanks (buff-bellied)... I will leave unidentified. [....]
