Pheasants, partridges in mountains in China

This video says about itself:

More than one hundred researchers from tens of countries attended the Galliformes Symposium in Chengdu, China in golden Autumn, 2007. After the symposium, some of them came to Daocheng to watch pheasants. White-eared Pheasants, Tibetan Partridge, Buff-throated Partridge, Blood Pheasant and other birds were seen in seven days. Most of them had a wonderful memory in Daocheng.

After 1 April 2018 came 2 April 2018. Then, as I blogged, we went from Kangding to Jiagenba.

As we went higher from Jiagenba to a mountainous nature reserve, there was this Tibetan partridge.

We also went higher. Where there was more snow, and this white-eared pheasant.

This is a male white-eared pheasant. They have a bit longer tails than females.

Because it was an unusually warm spring, the snow had already started melting.

Usually, about 2 April, white-eared pheasants here have their mating dances. But this spring, these had already happened, and couples had found each other (the male in front on the photo).

Game birds were not the only birds in this area. So, stay tuned!
