5 days ago I found Pygmy Cormorant in Sorbulak lakes, Ili river valley. In 2017 Pygmy Cormorant also was found as a breeding bird in Alakol lake. So the chance of Xinjiang birdwatchers to view this bird is much increased.

张星敏: 请老师们帮助辨识是否是黄腰柳萦。难道在乌市南山也有它的存在和踪迹?拍摄时以为是暗绿柳莺。事后在电脑修图时发现,但又不能确定。头部顶冠纹非树枝影子映衬所致。
