More beautiful birds in Yangxian county, China

Russet sparrows, 5 April 2018

As this blog said before, on 5 April 2018, we were at a hide in Yangxian county, Shaanxi province, China; to see golden pheasants. We did not just see golden pheasants, but other beautiful birds as well. Like russet sparrows, with which my earlier blog post ended. Here on the photo some more russet sparrows, both male and female.

The songbird on this photo may look a bit like a blackcap, but isn’t. Blackcaps don’t live in China.

Maybe thin branches are easier if you are an oriental turtle dove. You don’t have to share them with pheasants.

Stay tuned, as there will be more on this blog about beautiful birds in Shaanxi, China!
