Our tour starts off in Almaty, where our hotel is strategically placed for an excellent introduction to Kazakhstan birding. Here we will search for Black Grouse, Meadow Bunting, Red-fronted Serin and the striking Azure Tit, while huge and majestic Bearded Vultures patrol the skies above. From Almaty we move to the Taukum Desert, where wells in the area attract Pin-tailed, Black-bellied and the much desired Pallas’s Sandgrouse. Other specialities include Saker Falcon, Saxaul Sparrow and Desert and Mongolian Finches. Flying to the capital, Astana, we will then bird the surrounding steppe in search of the enigmatic Demoiselle Crane and the endangered Sociable Lapwing at their favoured breeding grounds. Here we will also enjoy sightings of Pallid Harrier, and both White-winged and the mythical Black Lark doing their displays over the steppe grasslands. Our final destination is the Tien Shan Mountain range where the highly sought after Ibisbill occurs (this smart looking bird is the sole representative of its monotypic family). Other specialties in this area include Güldenstädt’s and Eversmann’s Redstarts, Sveretov’s Tit-Babbler and the stunning White-tailed Rubythroat, to name just a few!
