The Black-eared Kite (Milvus lineatus) is a medium-sized bird of prey in the family Accipitridae, which also includes many other diurnal raptors. Unlike others of the group, they are opportunistic hunters and are more likely to scavenge. They spend a lot of time soaring and gliding in thermals in search of food. The characters of the race: Head darker and less contrast with colour of back; crown less sharply streaked; belly, body sides, long leg feathers and under tail coverts have mainly brown tone. Inner webs of primaries at base have well developed white, sometimes with brown cross bands. On outer web of P 6 sharp narrowing. Male wing length 465-495 (478), female 470-520 (491) mm.

Nests in Western, Northern Kazakhstan, in Altai, Kalbinskiy Altai, in Zaysan depression, Tarbagatay ridge and in Tien Shan. Widespread on migration, including highlands (Bolshoye Almatinskoye lake), and on the Tibetan Plateau.

The Yarlung Tsangpo ཡར་ཀླུངས་གཙང་པོ་ (Brahmaputra) River

About 2,900 km (1,800 miles) long
The Yarlung Tsangpo ཡར་ཀླུངས་གཙང་པོ་ or Brahmaputra arises at the foot of the Chemayungdung Glacier (at the Mountain Ganglung Gang Ri) and flows 2900km through Tibet , easternmost India, and Bangladesh, where it joins the Ganges and empties into the Bay of Bengal the Indian Ocean. Downstream from Arunachal Pradesh the river becomes wider and at this point is called the Brahmaputra River. The Brahmaputra is one of Hinduism's most sacred rivers, and its name means "Brahma's Son".

The county capital of Dowi, traditionally known in Tibetan as Yardzi or Dowi Khar and Chinese as Xunhua, lies on the south bank of the river Machu (Yellow River).
Since the 14th century the county has been predominantly inhabited by the Salar, a very tight-knit band of Central Asian Muslims. By the 19th century, the Salar had absorbed several villages north of the river Machu (Yellow River). The county town is quite large, but surrounded by fields, some open and others enclosed by mud walls, where fruit trees are cultivated. Despite the Salars`overwhelming dominance in the agriculturally rich valleys of lower Dowi, the Tibetans continue to occupy the upper valleys, and several important monasteries can be visited. Prior to 1958 (Cultural Revolution) there were altogether 33 Tibetan shrines or monasteries within the county, the most important being Bimdo Gonpa and Gori Gonpa.

by Sherab Woeser

DHARAMSHALA, January 24: In news just in, at least five Tibetans have died in police firings in Serthar, eastern Tibet today.

The incidence occurred earlier today when a large crowd of Tibetans gathered in the central town of Serthar and started raising slogans calling for Tibet’s independence.

Sources in exile with contacts in the region say that over 600 Chinese security personnel arrived at the scene of the protests and began firing indiscriminately at the crowd.

Speaking to Dharamshala based radio service VoT, an unnamed Tibetan said that five Tibetans were confirmed dead with over 40 Tibetans carrying serious injuries.

“The Chinese security personnel began to fire indiscriminately at the crowd of Tibetans demonstrating against the Chinese government in the central town of Serthar,” the Tibetan said.

Beijing based Tibetan writer, Woeser has also independently confirmed that five Tibetans were killed in the protests today. Woeser identified one of the dead as Bobo, a Tibetan man in his mid-thirties.

Sources say the whole of Serthar is under virtual martial law with large numbers of Chinese security personnel maintaining a strict surveillance all over the town.

All the shops and restaurants and public amenities in the region have been forced to shut down.

There is fear that the number of casualties will rise as injured Tibetans have been left with no access to medical treatment.

In this picture ; Nemo Nanyi high snow mountain on the right, and Kune ri (Guna) high snow mountain on the left.

Nemo Nanyi མེ་མོ་ ན་ ཉི་ (Gurla Mandhata) 7728m (25354ft). It is the 34th highest peak in the world (using a 500 metre prominence cutoff). It is also notable for being well within the Tibetan Plateau (most peaks of similar height - except notably Shishapangma, the world's 14th highest peak - lie nearer to or outside the edge of the Plateau) and relatively far away from other peaks of height greater than 7500 metres. It sits roughly across Lake Manasarowar from the sacred peak of Mount Kailash. The Tibetan name, Naimona'nyi, is said to come from naimo = "herbal medicine", na = "black", nyi = "heaped-up slabs", giving "the mountain of heaped-up slabs of black herbal medicine."
