Birds in Central Asia

Birds I've seen and identified in Central Asia.  All the photos posted are my own, taken with a mediocre camera.  They are named in English, Latin, Russian, and Kyrgyz based on Joost van der Ven's Looking at Birds in Kyrgyz Republic.

The best part about seeing new birds in Central Asia is finding out they're birds I've read about, but never seen before, like mynahs, hoopoes, and rooks.
