Altai Snowcock
Found in the remote high mountains of Mongolia, Altai Snowcock is one of the most sought-after species for Palearctic birding enthusiasts. The habitat is open mountainside above the tree line at altitudes usually ranging between 2,000 and 3,600 metres. Due to hunting pressure by the local people for their medicinal power, population size of the species is declining.
Spotted Capercaillie
The Spotted Capercaillie permanently occurs in the boreal forests of Mongolia. The male Spotted Capercaillie looks similar to that of its western counterpart, but slightly smaller and has a lot of large white spots at the tips of the upper tail coverts and on wings. The best time to observe the species is the lekking period between late April and May.
White-naped Crane
This enigmatic crane is always a highlight for any birding trip in Mongolia. The breeding pairs lay their eggs in the wet valleys of the lakes and rivers in north eastern Mongolia, Russia, and China and they winter in China, Korea, and Japan.
Relict Gull
Considered as a distinctive species only in 1970, the species is one of the rarest birds in the world. However, a breeding colony had been found at Khukh Lake in central Mongolia not long ago. The number is still declining due to habitat loss and degradation. During migration, it rests at the southern and central Mongolian lakes.
Pallas’s Fish Eagle
After extensive study on its breeding and migration ecology, this species is now thought to visit Mongolia to spend summer but not to breed. Perhaps it breeds only in India during winter. It is a large dark brown eagle with buffy-golden head, neck, and breast and broad white band across lower part of wedge-shaped tail diagnostic. Vagrant to Finland, Israel, Norway and Poland.
Amur Falcon
Longest known migrating raptor reaches all the way down to South Africa passing through western India where they were killed numerously a few years ago. Thankfully the slaughter has been stopped nowadays. Comparing its western counterpart Red-footed Falcon, the male Amur Falcon has white underwing-coverts. Breeds in northern Mongolia and south eastern Russia.
Oriental Plover
Breeds in arid steppes or stony flats in deserts in Mongolia and China, migrating Malaysia and Australia in winter. It is a striking wader, male has orange underlined black breast band with no black face mask. The birders spend much time searching on the vast steppes.
Pallas’s Sandgrouse
You can see hundreds of Pallas’s Sandgrouse on a small spring or ponds in Mongolian Gobi Desert early morning, but it breeds on the open desert steppes. This species has a wide breeding range and occurs from the Caspian Sea east to northeastern China, but it is mainly known for its irruptive behaviour.
Henderson’s Ground Jay
It is restricted to southern Mongolia, north-western China and gets just into Kazakhstan.
Kozlov’s Accentor
This is a true Mongolian breeding endemic, although there are several winter observations in China. It is localized in high mountains of Mongolia including Mongolian Altai, Gobi Altai, and western Khangai Mountains. It prefers to breed in bushes of junipers.

    Magnificent Raptors of Mongolia Tour

    Well, I cannot describe the success of this expedition in just few words, perhaps as it titled above: The ultimate expedition across the Mongolian steppes. In comparison with any published trip reports during similar season of the year, late spring-summer in Mongolia, we succeed in locating the largest number of species and subspecies. We recorded no less than 260 species, and photographed over 230 of them! I am here please to share with other our success, in showing 68 files, that coverts 100+ species that documented during the expedition... and which I phrased as Mongolia at its best sites...
