Yaks, rosefinches, snow and blue sheep in China


After 7 April 2018 came 8 April 2018. We were in the Wolong Balangshan mountains in China. This is a BBC video about Temminck’s tragopan. A bird species which we might have seen there, but did not see.

This video is about another animal species which we might have seen, but didn’t.

The video says about itself:

6 November 2017

The Wolong National Nature Reserve in southwest China’s Sichuan Province spotted 26 snow leopards.

Yaks, 8 April 2018

We did see these yaks when we came above 3,000 meter.

Snow, 8 April 2018

The higher we went, the more snow we saw.

Snowy mountains, 8 April 2018

Not only on the mountain tops further away …

Snow, on 8 April 2018

… but also close to us.

Then, on a slope above us, a beautiful male Chinese monal.

A raven.

Dark-breasted rosefinch

A bit further, in the snow, this male dark-breasted rosefinch.

Yellow-billed choughs flying.

Plain mountain finch, 8 april 2018

We saw this plain mountain-finch.

Alpine accentor, 8 April 2018

A bit further, this Alpine accentor.

Blue sheep, 8 April 2018

And then, above us, this blue sheep. Snow leopards eat blue sheep. So, though we did not see snow leopards, we did see wildlife living in their biotope.

Stay tuned, as there will be more on the birds of the mountains above Wolong!
