Thanks for the welcome! It seems this will be a wonderful way to share some of the information/photographs/sightings I have made over time ... and even more importantly, to start working more together as a community to document such sightings. I am a conservation biologist working in the Tibetan plateau region in western China; and have also just created a new mission focused on Qinghai province, China. Again, thanks for the welcome!
