Afghan postcards, Part 2



Spanish Sparrow


Back in June, we posted about BBF (Birdcouple Best Friend) Peter Kaestner, who is in Afghanistan. It will come as no surprise that Peter has already built a super Afghanistan list of 110 birds (last we heard).

If he finds a species that no one has ever seen in Afghanistan before, we will be unsurprised.

Here are a few recent shots he kindly shared.  (For the record, Warren's Afghanistan list is five species: Common Myna, Eurasian Tree Sparrow, Eurasian Magpie, Laughing Dove and Rose-Ringed Parakeet.

Peter helpfully informed us that the fruit in the last post is a Persimmon, not a Crabapple. The man knows everything.
