April Birding - Meet the Demoiselle Cranes

2015/04/06 - 2015/04/15:

This a great time of year – spring migration is peaking and new species occurs daily depending weather especially the wind conditions. However the dates coincide with good numbers of roosting Demoiselle cranes in Eastern Kyrgyzstan, thrushes, wagtails, raptors, shrikes, etc.- and the mountainous species is fabulous with calling Himalaya snowcocks, redstarts busy with territory disputes, Wallcreepers calling early morning, and lots of more species busy with springtime activities after the long winter. Meantime it is still possible to get some of the Siberian winter visitors and even some of the rare and otherwise difficult species e.g. Solitary Snipe.

One of our targets in this tour is the roosting Demoiselle Cranes in eastern Kyrgyzstan. usually this period of year is peak time for roosting Demoiselle Cranes - on their way to breeding grounds in Kazakhstan and Southern Siberia. Numbers btw 1000 - 2000 birds occur!

The weather and conditions are usually excellent – and the light is usually wonderful for photographers.

Before departure, Miksture mail a detailed list of birds.
