blog dedicated to the birds of Tibet. With pictures of Tibetan birds, and information on birdwatching and travel in Tibet

Samstag, 28. Januar 2012


Well, where to start ... yesterday I was out for gulls right in front of my house on the river. But I got bored, there is only Brown-headed Gulls and Pallas Gulls, and not much plumage varieties. There were Ruddy Shell Duck and Mallards as well, sure Himalayan Wagtails and Eurasian Crag Martins (flying so fast that there was even no thinking about making pictures), a Common Sandpiper and a Common Greenshank. But what really excited me were some wallcreepers, at least 2 or 3. So I tried to make pictures of them, but it was not easy either ... the beautiful colors show best when flying ... so I had to get one in flight ... only with modest success. Here the pictures: what a beautiful bird!

Welcome to tibetbirds!!!

Welcome to my new blog!!!
I already maintain a webpage:
but to make the whole thing more interactive, a blog seems nicer. Let's see how Chinese internet surveillance reacts ... I live in China and usually they are not fond of blogging. But birds should be quite harmless. Therefore please: never ever any politics or otherwise offensive content! We need to have the scissors right in our mind ... :-(      Thank you.

Beside that: I live in Lhasa/ Tibet/ China, I love birdwatching and go out once a week if possible, I like to make pictures of birds and I will put them online here or on my webpage, and I give some information about birding and travel in Tibet - and I CAN HELP YOU ORGANIZING YOUR TRIP TO TIBET! With individual permits, individually tailored tours, and great birding, see:
So far for today ... I first have to learn how to do this blogging ...
