Dear Birding Mongolia Team,
I have again sighted the collared Bar-headed Goose at Paradgaon Tank, in Nagpur District in Maharashtra. I photographed the bird on 12 December 2009. The collar number is "NU". The same bird was photographed last year too at the same place and photographed by Tarun Balpande who accompanied me this time also.

Sain bain oo, Axel. I have about two years of bird observations from Kharkhorin, from spring and fall migration seasons 2000-2002. I was a Peace Corps Volunteer and worked with the Khangai National Park; however, the bird data that they requested I record never went anywhere. Are you interested in having it?

A friend and I are also walking across the entire Khangai Range this summer as part of a wildlife project, and I would be interested in talking about what sort of bird observations would be useful to you.

I tried to email you but the link isn't working for me (probably because of problems with my email server....) Could you try emailing me at rebecca (at) nrrcooperative (dot) org?

My own blog, which includes information about my work in Mongolia, is found at www.egulo.wordpress.org - click on the Mongolia tag.
