The new species for me. Firstly I think it'd Jungle Babbler then found info that its Yellow-billed of White-headed Babbler. Last name is better to me.

I congratulate! Is this your first lifer for this trip?

Askar, now I doubt which bird I saw on February 5, 2012 in Goa. Look, maybe it's not a Jungle Babbler and a Yellow-billed Babbler

Askar, I saw the majority of these birds, therefore I thought you saw them too.

Askar, how the Barn Swallow can be a laifer for you if it is a common bird in Kazakhstan?
