Beskrivelse: One of many Amur Falcons seen on passage during a trip to Laotieshan, near Dalian, Liaoning Province, China. Access to this migration spot has only just been granted to foreigners, given its proximity to military sites, but it clearly has great potential, especially in autumn. Details of my trip can be found on my blog: www.birdingbeijing.wordpress.com.
Titel: Brown Eared Pheasant (Crossoptilon mantchuricum)
Beskrivelse: One of 20 birds that can be seen at a monastery near Jiaocheng, Shanxi Province, China, where the monks feed them in winter. In spring the birds move up the mountain to breed, and only one pair were present during our visit on 11 April. A very difficult bird to see.
