Chinese Beautiful Rosefinch and others 红眉朱雀

After little luck trying to track down Great Bustards, we decided to move on to find the Chinese Beautiful Rosefinch ( 红眉朱雀 ) . When streams were frozen, leaving only a small waterhole, little birds that didn’t mind the cold and windy weather gathered around the area for a quick drink and even bath! It was a very neat idea to just stay in the car and watch birds come by while we devoured our little winter picnic! 😛

Birds that came by included a flock of Yellow-bellied Tits (黄腹山雀 ), Great Tits (大山雀), Marsh Tits (沼泽山雀 ), Siberian Accentor (棕眉山岩鹨 ), Godlewski’s Bunting (戈氏岩鹀 ), and of course the long awaited Chinese Beautiful Rosefinch ( 红眉朱雀 )! What a beautiful name! Nice to see 3 females, but where is the male?!? >.<
