Михаил Белоусов: Кто-то из горихвосток?

2018-08-19

Андрей Баздырев: Наверное, мохноногий курганник тёмной морфы - крылья очень уж длинными выглядят.

2018-08-19

Андрей Баздырев: Вроде бы полевой конёк - совсем без пестрин, ноги светлые, только вот бровь какая-то слабоватая.

2018-08-19

Андрей Баздырев: Вроде бы тоже на бормотушку похожа: центральные рулевые короче остальных.
