    I very much appreciate your nice pictures and the website. Today I am leaving for Nepal for the 8th time and will arrive saterday (Fuji Hotel). On each trip I try to make pictures of birds. I now collected more than 80 species. See also list enclosed

    Here is a link to G+ where you can find them

    Finally I would ask you whether you know the birds in the 2 pictures enclosed

    Thank you very much, Tony Gaillard

    Groet, Tony

      Hi Tony,
      Thank you for your kind words. And I am glad you have found the blog helpful. As for the pictures, if you could tell me where they were taken, I would be able to help you better. Looks like Tibetan Snowcock to me.
      Best wishes,
