Rediscovery of Sillem's Mountain Finch

"In early June 2012, Yann Muzika photographed many finches during a difficult trek in Yeniugou Valley in western Qinghai, China (1500km east of Kushku Maidan), including one he could not identify. In August, he sent a batch of photographs to Krys Kazmierczak, the maintainer of OrientalBirdImages.org, who immediately identified the mystery bird as the long-lost Sillem's Mountain Finch."

Wow! I'm amazed! These are so awesome! I hit the jackpot!
Booklover those are amazing pics you found. I just love the bird riding in the back of the other.
Mr. Peterdactyl I love the hawk picture you took from your backyard and the Halloweeen bird photo. You are a great photographer!
Yes I love Halloween.
And Booklover the picture you got from Facebook with the bird and the preying Mantis - awesome!

It is Halloween time, right? Peter

Oh thank you so very much Mr. Peterdactyl! Those are lovely pictures!
I bet the group will be amazed at how you caught the birds in flight and with food in their beak.

Cool booklover. I love regular and espresso coffee. I get up early - but I am more of a night owl myself.

Some days just too early for me - but I get up anyway.
