Almaty. Republic Square.

2012-12-27 | Askar Isabekov

Before the dawn I came to the city administration; Peregrine Falcon was perching in the niche. At around 8:00 am the projectors illuminating the building turned off; at the same time the Rooks with Crows began to fly. Peregrine woke up but did not fly from the niche. I made the control shot for the record. At 8.15 the light was still no, I was very cold and went to the work, Peregrine was still in the niche. [...... read more ]


Republic Square. Peregrine Falcon.

At 9 am the morning was light and snowy. Peregrine Falcon was in the niche. Perhaps it not leave the niche when the snowfall. It means that you can just wait until the end of snowfall and take photos with better light. [...... read more ]

Yesterday night at around 10 pm I went to the Republic Square to look at Peregrine, just to check if it there or not. Falcon was in the niche where it stayed to night last year.Also today and yesterday, past my window the Eastern Buzzard flew by with the escort of dozen Crows. [...... read more ]


Kimasar gorge. Ile-Alatau National Park.

2012-12-16 | Askar Isabekov

Family tour to the mountains. Day was sunny in the morning, but snowy in afternoon. In the spruce I heard and watched Three-toed Woodpecker but didn’t make good photos because I careless came to the spruce. But it was impossible to do it otherwise because snow was knee-deep and the slope was arduous. Woodpecker flew out but I saw that it scraped the bark from the lower branches of the spruce. Also I watched about 20-25 White-winged Grosbeaks and 4-6 Red-rumped Rosefinches foraged in the barberry thickets, on burr, and on rowan-trees. On the mouth of the gorge I saw the large flock (about 150 birds) of the Red-fronted Serins. Other birds: 3 Carrion Crows, 1 Hooded Crow, 1 Coal Tit, 1 Mistle Thrush. [...... read more ]

Kimasar gorge. Ile Alatau mountains.

2012-12-08 | Askar Isabekov

Sunny and warm day. The birds were not a lot. We were surprised by Waxwings which were observed in spruce forests at altitudes up to an 2400 m, and more than likely they flew to the upper border of spruce forest. We saw four pairs of Black Vultures flying west. I guess that not all of them were the same birds. Red-fronted Serins were feeding in birch grove. Probably now they have enough food in the mountains, they will come down to the city some later. [...... read more ]

Almaty. Republic Square.

2012-12-02 | Askar Isabekov

After three days of snowfall the sun came out, the snow piled above the knee. For the two-hour walk only I noticed only two Hooded Crows perching on the birch tree; other Crows and Rooks were observed only in the sky, in total not more than a dozen. It is not surprising since both Rooks and Crows feed mainly on the ground, no ground - no Rooks. For the first time in the Square I watched Reed Bunting. Very easy bird didn’t pay any attention to me, and hiding in the bush from the passing dogs for about ten seconds. Bunting foraged by seeds of some climbing plants. Also I saw seven Lesser Witethroats, all seven birds look very cheerful. Redwing was found twice. [...... read more ]
