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.
One of many oriental turtle doves near the golden pheasant hide.
And a red-billed blue magpie came again. One? No, two of these beautiful birds.
And yet another oriental turtle dove. With a male golden pheasant behind it.
With two male golden pheasants.
Maybe thin branches are easier if you are an oriental turtle dove. You don’t have to share them with pheasants.
Finally, this white-browed laughingthrush.
Stay tuned, as there will be more on this blog about beautiful birds in Shaanxi, China!
