Very nice photo of this interesting sandgrouse (I like a lot the different sandgrouse species). Congratulations. Did you use a hide to obtain the image?

Best regards from the Canaries.

We recorded Pallas's Sandgrouse in the central steppe areas on 11 days during our 3 week trip to Mongolia. The species is not uncommon and once discovered on the ground can be very confidential when approached with caution. I took this photo from the car.

Ok, thanks for the response.

Best regards from the Canaries.
