January 12, 2017 – Ala Shan Redstart or Przevalski’s Redstart (Phoenicurus alaschanicus)

These redstarts are found in parts of northern and central China. Little is known about their diet, but they are thought to eat mostly berries in the autumn. Their nests may be built from moss and grass stems on scrub-covered hillsides. They are classified as Near Threatened by the IUCN because they seem to be uncommon in their small range and may be threatened by habitat loss.
