After what we saw earlier that day, still 8 April 2018 in the mountains above Wolong in Sichuan, China. We saw a Tibetan snowcock. First flying, then it landed, as the photo shows.
The snowcock walked towards a snowy patch.
We saw some of many Tibetan Buddhist prayer flags of Balang mountain (Balangla in Tibetan).
A bit further, two golden eagles flying.
Then, a bearded vulture flying with a bone in its bill. It dropped the bone on a slope to crush it and to be able to eat the marrow. Probably it was a young vulture which still had to learn, as the bone fell on a patch where plants grew, not on hard rock which is better at breaking dropped bones.
We arrived at a mountain pass where we could again see many prayer flags and much snow.
There was a beautiful view of mountains and valleys.
A Himalayan vulture flew overhead.
Time to say goodbye to the prayer flags and to the snow.
8 April 2018 was our last day of seeing birds in China. In the late afternoon and evening we went back to Chengdu. On 9 April from Chengdu airport our plane took us out of China.
So, no more blog posts on the birds of this April 2018 in China. But there will be many more wildlife blog posts on this blog!
Thank you for this beautiful serie over China wildlife and birds.
Thanks for your kind comment! I hope you will like my future wildlife blog posts as well.
