Daurian Jackdaws in Kazakhstan
About 10 Daurian Jackdaws (Corvus dauuricus) have been regularly seen near a rubbish dump by Alexeevka village (east of Almaty). Sergey Shmygalev first spotted them feeding together with Rooks, Hooded Crows and Eurasian Jackdaws at the beginning of February 2010. Then Oleg Belyalov, Fedor Karpov, Andrey Kovalenko and Svetlana Annenkova observed some birds at the beginning of March. Andrey Kovalenko kindly provided us with photographs.
