Blanford's Snowfinch (Montifringilla blanfordi) - Neither of the field guides that I had prepared me for the extensive rusty on the head and neck of this one. Alpine Accentor (Prunella collaris) - It was a bit of a surprise to find this one working the ground just in front of us when we ran back up the hill to look for the Tibetan Shrike on Rubber Mountain.
