Billede info: April’s observations and ideas of unusual high numbers of Pallas Sandgrouse outside normal range seem to be true. Last week’s re-visit to Konchengel in SE-Kazakhstan again provided excellent encounters. I think foreign birders will have great pleasures with this species this summer, and it really will be exciting to follow the influx in the coming year. As written at Aprils PS pictures, I’m quite sure that’s something is on its way… I have never seen such numbers of PS in Central Asia during more than 15 years birding in Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan. I have been told about high numbers of PS in autumn at certain places in Central Kazakhstan, but I have never witnessed so. Now there is influx of PS in SE-Kazakhstan, and I’m quite convinced it’s not a coincidence – something is unusual. Whether it’s the cold spring (we still have Humes Leaf Warblers in the lowland – they should weeks ago have been back on their breeding grounds in the mountains), lack of food or a good breeding season last year that provide these high numbers of PS this spring is not clear.

Anyway – it’s a magnificent bird with its orange face, characteristic wide sounding flight calls, its pin-tail and very charming behavior. It seems shy when its seen in the distance and circles around - ually heard before seen. Its flight is extremely rapid and suddenly its close – and not that shy… often bumps down near the surprised birder. Sometimes they arrive quietly and surprise the birder with its presence…

This is a bird I highly can recommend... for everyone interested in Central Asian birds – it’s a mythic and magnificent bird
