2015 game birds photography tour report

 

This is a Sichuan game birds photography custom-made tour for a singapore couple, Rose and Joseph Lee, during this 24 days tour ( 14th April – 7th May ) we visited Western Sichuan and Northwestern Sichuan, tour route: Chengdu – Kangding- Xinduqiao – Yajiang – same way back to Chengdu – Wanglang – Tangjiahe – Chuanzhusi – Ruoergai – Maerkang – Balang Shan – Chengdu.

During this tour, we got all the possible game birds on these places, some of them are very good sharp photos such as : Lady Amherst’s Pheasant, White-eared Pheasant, Blood Pheasant, Tibetan Partridge, Szechenyi’s Monal Partridge ( Buff-throated Partridge ), Verreaux’s Monal Partridge ( Chestnut-throated Partridge ), Temminck’s Tragopan, Snow Partridge. Some of them are not sharp enough or just recording shots such as : Blue-eared Pheasant ( in Wanglang saw too, in Ruoergai saw another two, both up on the slope ), Chinese Monal, Tibetan Snowcock, Golden Pheasant. One species no photo, we only saw a pair of them around 30-40 meters away, disturbed by us, one running away across the grass, another one flew away into the bushes ahead of us: Chinese Grouse.

Other rare and good species we saw on this trip are: Sichuan Wood Owl ( good photo ), Black-necked Crane ( good photo ), a pair of Sichuan Jay flew across the valley in the freezing snow ( no photo ), Przevalski’s Finch / Pink-tailed Bunting ( young male one, not sharp enough photo),  Lammergeier ( good photo ), White-browed Tit Warbler ( good photo ), Crested Tit Warbler ( good photo ), White-browed Tit ( good photo ), Siberian Rubythroat ( not sharp enough photo ),  Grandala ( no photo), Snowy-cheeked Laughingthrush /Sukatschev’s Laughingthrush  (very good and close view, but no photo, we mainly focus on to photograph Chinese Grouse ).
