Red-Headed Bunting

We got out of Bishkek for a bit yesterday (more on that in another post) and there were many red-headed buntings around.  This is the best photo I was able to get, but you can look here for more.

They were such cheerful birds. 

Someday I'll have a better camera.  But I was delighted to get this photo at least.

    I've wanted to know the name of that bird for years! I could never find a decent bird guide there. Anyway, I would see them around Karakol, flying in the fields. At the time I wanted to write a story that would include this bird. Thank you!
