Them again!

What was once a very common sight inside all riparian forests
is now extremely rare: tree hole-nesting birds.
Eurasian Tree Sparrow, Tuul Gol, UB, Febuary 2017

The day before I was about to fly back to work I went down to the river to see what is around there. I caught this Eurasian Tree Sparrow singing from his nest site. Thanks to the unsustainable use of the riparian forests along Mongolia’s rivers this is not seen as often as it used to be. Most big trees had been cut down to be used as fuel wood or for the construction of fences and in many areas no larger trees are left. The high grazing/browsing pressure by too much life stock prevents any sapling to grow and it is not difficult to predict that in the nearer future Mongolia will have no riparian forest any more. Does anybody care? No!

Finding birds today way not easy. My stretch of the river was almost devoid of birds and I did not discover any “better” crow among the c50 corvids that were hanging around. A female White-backed Woodpecker stayed well hidden until it suddenly took flight to disappear somewhere in the distance and a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker remained always on the far side of the trees.

After a while I flushed a group of six birds, finches according to their jizz, and I recognized the calls of European Greenfinch. The group flew upstream and it took me quite a while to relocate them. The flock consisted of four Pallas’s Rosefinches and a pair of European Greenfinches. The birds were incredibly shy and I only managed to get the female documented.

This is already my third sighting here in UB (see here “Surprise below Songino Khairkhan Uul”; and I saw them again in October 2014 at the International School of Ulaanbaatar). With so few sightings it is hard to know whether something is going on or not. Although UB is the base for most local birdwatchers there are no other records. Only the future will tell if they are wintering in the area regularly.

After studying this blog, I came to know about the bird's life and got interested in bird, biodiversity and conservation. The bird's image diverts our attention and let me involve to the nature.

Dikkat edilmesi gereken bir hususta şudur ki; karşınızdaki insan sizin konuşmalarınızdan olumlu veya olumsuz etkilenebilir. Bu yüzden önemli olan nokta yalnızca sohbet etmek değil aynı zamanda yararlı ve düzeyli bir sohbet olmasına da ayrı bir önem gösterilmelidir. Aksi takdirde karşınızdaki birey sizden rahatsız olabilir hatta sohbetinizi sonlandırma kararı dahi alabilir. Ayrıca yeni teknolojik gelişmeler ile birlikte bu sohbet odaları yalnızca kişisel bilgisayarlardan değil mobil cihazlardan da gerçekleştirilebilmektedir.

Great post to share with audience like me. Happy Blogging. what will disagree in numerous software system programs is that the advanced tools & options that build making styles easier. Some software system programs do need additional leg work with the manual inputting of ‘stitch settings’ whereas others i'd contemplate ‘more advanced’ as they assist change the method & speed things up for you
