All pictures taken in late July/early August 2008
I know some are impossible to ID... My trip wasn't a bird trip, but if possible, I'd like to know the ID... Thanks a lot!

1. taken in Kyoto, Japan. Probably a Black Kite?
2. taken in Nara, Japan. No idea...
3. taken in Vladivostok, Russia. Cinereous Tit?
4. taken 500km east from Baikal Lake. Thought it was Hooded Crow, but it's way outside its range
5. taken 100km east from Baikal Lake. Black Kite again?
6. taken 50 km east from Baikal Lake. Feral Rock dove?
7. taken by the Baikal Lake. Cannot be sure which gulls are on the lake at that time of year... Perhaps Vega Gull?

Black-eared Kite
White-cheeked Starling
immature Japanese Tit, I think (I said Great Tit first, but Asian Eastcoast is Japanese Tit)
Carrion Crow and Daurian Jackdaw (in dark and pied form) maybe?
the rest I can't tell. Are you sure this is the maximum size to upload?
