Huh...interesting. Hybridization often seems to be a big issue with endangered species--even when they aren't that closely related to domesticated species. I know it's a major concern for conserving wild buffalo populations in the U.S. (many of them have interbred with cattle). I also posted something on another Project Noah post about unusual hybridizations happening because of shifts in climate:

If you want to see something REALLY cool and rare that lives in the gobi desert you should check out the gobi bear...

The colors in this are incredible. Are you using some kind of filter? Hope to see more shots soon in any case...

Well the thing about this camel is it's not wild. There are wild camels in Mongolia that are super super rare. The domesticated ones are everywhere--they use them for riding, milking, meat, wool. In any case, thanks for the compliment! The blue stuff in back is a lake where people harvest salt in the spring.

Wow! I actually really like the second one.

Lori, I was about to mention that. It can definitely be confusing for a U.S. birder abroad (or, I'm sure, a European in the U.S.)!

These are really great shots you're putting together. Any idea what this is?

Cool looking bird. I've heard of kookaburras but didn't realize they were a kind of kingfisher, which is one of my favorites in the States.
