May 2016 Wolong and Wawushan birding report

Sichuan and Beijing, China 5 to 21 May 2016

Sichuan 5 to 12 May with Sissi (Xionrui) Tang as bird guide and a driver, arranged through http://www.chinabirdingtour.com. Accommodations were mostly basic local hotels, the same ones used by birding tours of the region. Two main areas were visited on this planned birding. (1) Mount Wawushan from Longcanngou village (SW of Chengdu) up to about 3200m ASL. (2) Mt Balanshan from Wolong. I recorded 73 life birds with some excellent gamebirds, babblers, thrushes, leaf-warblers and bush-warblers. Construction at the top of the Mt Wawushan road made conditions very muddy and wet on the road, and the whole area seemed more disturbed for pheasants than is desirable. The 7 May on Wawushan was raining and fogged in for most of the day but the best for birds and produced a red panda on the road. Both mountains had rhododendrons and other species in flower, and the mountain flowers on Mt Balanshan were excellent. Birding Mt Balanshan was delightful with beautiful scenery and a pass at 4580 m ASL. Starts at 4am and standing waiting for snowcocks, snow partridge or Chinese Monal before dawn with temperatures below freezing and a breeze made me glad of my down jacket and gloves. A thermos of hot coffee and sandwiches for breakfast were very welcome! Leaf warbler and bush warbler identification proved difficult and I was glad of having downloaded lots of calls from Xeno-Canto. The Chinese guide to Phylloscopus (leaf) warblers by Liu Yang (in Chinese but mainly pictoral) was also very helpful but I found myself searching the internet for information on the distributions of some species, which have been described since the China field guide (Mackinnon and Phillips 2000) and distribution info is lacking in the Phylloscopus guide.

On 13 May I visited Longxi-Hongkou National Nature Reserve (N of Dujiangyan, and N of Chengdu) and walked around a small lake with Prof. Zhishu Xiao having been taken to the reserve by one of the reserve managers.

On the road was a pair of Temminck's Tragopan, and we found singing Sichuan Bush-Warblers which came out obligingly when their voice was played back to them. This last species was only described in 2015! Ate lunch in the kitchen with the (all male) park staff--fun to see how the locals do it. Dumplings for breakfast at a hole-in-the-wall local restaurant in Dujiangyan. Beijing was mainly a work trip but with occasional trips to the Botanical Garden and Olympic Forest Park looking for migrants. Most notable were a Chinese (Green-backed) Flycatcher, Chestnut Bunting, and Yellow-breasted Bunting.
