About Bird Of The Year (II). The White-Browed Tit-Warbler

The White-browed tit-warbler (Leptopoecile sophiae) is a rare, non-migratory bird of Kyrgyzstan. This is one of the smallest representatives of Kyrgyz fauna. The White-browed tit-warbler is found in shrub lands of the Tian Shan Mountains, in the Jungar Alatau and other mountain ranges in Middle and Central Asia and at altitudes of 2,400 to 4,000 meters above sea level.

The White-browed tit-warbler has a pretty appearance. These birds have a diverse range of colors: sky-blue, blue, purple and reddish. All this, together with its fluffy plumage and relatively long tail, attracts a lot of attention from bird connoisseurs.

Since the White-browed tit-warbler is a rare representative of Kyrgyzstan's avian world, it needs serious measures for its protection and preservation.

As in the previous year, this issue was designed in close cooperation with the Kyrgyz Wildlife Conservation Society (KWCS), which every year chooses a species to be designated as "Bird Of The Year" in Kyrgyzstan.
