Birds Watching Tours In Mongolian

Birds Watching Tours In MongolianMongolia, unlike any parts of the world is considered as a paradise for birds lovers and ornithologists. Mongolia is home to over 400 species of birds. Mongolia has a rich composition of bird species due to the migration routes from Pacific and Indian Oceans to the Mediterranean Sea and to the Arctic Ocean and northern tundra. The best seasons to visit are the migration times.

Mongolia's 246 species of birds include 108 species of passage migrants, seventy-four species of residents, 231 species of summer visitors and thirteen species of winter visitors that breed in Siberia. The bird fauna is particularly rich in waterfowl and shorebirds which, including gulls and terns, number 120 species, and birds of prey (thirty-eight species).

These areas are the best spot to see forest, steppe and water birds. Since many of the bird species of Mongolian and some of the mammals are migratory, collaboration with the neighboring states of the Russian Federation and China is essential to give adequate protection to Mongolia's wildlife. On the steppes, you will certainly see many White-naped crane (Grus vipio-see the picture on the left side), Gypaetus barbatus, Grey Demoiselle Cranes-the most common bird in Mongolia. Other steppe species include the upland Buzzard, Steppe Eagle, Black Kite and some assorted owls and hawks. In the mountain, you may be lucky to spot species of ptarmigan, finch, woodpecker and owl.

The avifauna includes some Central Asian endemic species, the Altai Snowcock (Tetraogallus altaica) and Kozlov's Accentor (Prunella kozlovi), and a number of world and regionally endangered species such as White-naped Crane (Grus vipio), Siberian Crane (Grus leucogeranus), Hooded Crane (Grus monacha), Pied Harrier (Circus melanoleucos), Great Bustard (Otus tarda), Eurasian Black or Cinereous Vulture (Aegypius monachus), Dalmation Pelican (Pelicanus crispus), Black Stork (Ciconia nigra), Lesser Kestrel (Falco naumanni), Eurasian Spoonbill (Platalea leucorodia), Relict Gull (Larus relictus), Swan Goose (Cygnopsis cygnoides), and Bearded Vulture or Lammergeyer (Gypaetus barbatus).

The tour is planned precisely with a high consideration on safety, education, comfort and of course a lot of fun. An ornithologist professor is invited from Zoology Department of Mongolian National University to lead the tour and share his knowledge of bird lives in different areas.
