Partridges, pheasants, tit at Pamuling monastery


This video from China says about itself:

Qinghai 2005 Part 6

This clip starts west of Nanqian, through the Kandashan Pass to the Mekong River. Species included are Hill pigeon, Ibisbill, Himalayan griffon vultures, Koslov’s/Tibetan bunting, Beautiful rosefinch, White-browed tit, Woolly hare, Tickell’s leaf warbler, White-browed/Stoliczka’s tit-warbler, Common rosefinch, Hodgson’s redstart, White-eared pheasant, Kessler’s thrush, White-winged grosbeak, Glover’s pika, Szechenyi’s Monal/Buff-throated partridge and Hume’s groundpecker.

As this blog told you, on 3 April 2018 we were at Pamuling Tibetan Buddhist monastery on the top of Pamuling mountain in Sichuan, China. Outside the monastery were many birds, like this buff-throated partridge.

Which came much closer than the bird on the video; the local monks feed the birds.

Then, two buff-throated partridges.

Besides this buff-throated partridge, Chinese white-browed rosefinches were also present.

So were Elliott’s laughingthrushes and giant laughingthrushes. And ravens.

Soon, these blood pheasants arrived. The female on the left, the male on the right.

They walked, like this female.

And they looked for food, like this male.

Later, a blood pheasant went looking for food in the monastery’s inner courtyard.

Rufous-vented tit, 3 April 2018

This rufous-vented tit was on a tree.

And this orange-flanked bush robin on another tree.

Near the monastery were two pigeons. They looked much like domestic pigeons; or like rock pigeons, the wild ancestors of domestic pigeons. However, they were hill pigeons: a related similar species, more adapted to mountains.

Stay tuned, as there will be more Pamuling birds on this blog!
