Siberian rubythroat, first time in the Netherlands


This video says about itself:

Singing male Siberian Rubythroat (Luscinia calliope) in Buryatia, Russia juni 2013. Recorded with a Sony RX100.

Translated from Hart van Nederland in the Netherlands yesterday:

In the North Holland local authority Opmeer this Friday a Siberian rubythroat has been spotted. If it is a wild bird, then it is the first time that this species is in the Netherlands.

The Siberian rubythroat is a songbird that originally is found only in Asia, especially in Siberia and northern Mongolia, China, Japan and Korea.

The bird in Hoogwoud town in Opmeer is an adult male; and is this still present today.
