About Terry Townshend

I am a British birder living and birding in Beijing from August 2010 until 2015. Through this blog I hope I can convey a sense of what it is like to live in this thriving, confident and contrasting city and the birdlife that can be found in its environs. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it! Terry Townshend, Beijing September 2010

    Based on your comments, I will go for Blyth’s for its short bill. By the way, i got some error while casting my Vote.

    • Ah, not good.. please let me know if anyone else has the same problem… it’s an experiment to use the voting application! No comment on your choice, Dev…!!! (not yet anyway). :)

  2. Hmm – like others apparently, can’t register my vote, which, by the way, was for Richard’s! I’ve not seen Blyth’s in spring, and, while this looks ‘cute and cuddly’ , on closer inspection, I think the structure fits Richard’s better than Blyth’s. I would hope a Blyth’s might show more distinct streaking on the crown and mantle than this bird and a less obvious supercilium. But I am waiting to be instructed!
