Paul Holt: Nice photo!With its cold brown tones, heavily streaked underparts (body, axillaries and larger underwing coverts) & uniform greater coverts lacking pale tips/dark bases & concolorous with flight feathers this is a juvenile Himalayan Vulture Gyps himalayensis.

Paul Holt: Long-eared Owl Asio otus
Streaked belly, finely barred wing-tip & multiple narrow dark bands on tail and secondaries. The apparent white trailing edge to the upperwing is misleading.

Pygmy Cormorant (Microcarbo pygmeus)

Xinjiang Changji Manas County National Wetland Park

Dec. 28, 2018, LIU Zhongde found this species in Manas River wetland.
Cyдиловская (1936) reported this species in Tien Shan, China. This recent discovery of Pygmy Cormorant clears up some of the historical doubts and the species can now be safely added to the Chinese avifauna.
