Black Saker from China
 
the fotos were borrowed from the owner of the birds, the first two fotos were of the same bird, the third foto (the one one the right) is the 2nd bird. These two sakers were trapped in northwest China. Are they the so called "Altai"?

Not sure of the 1st pic. 2nd pic is Altai. 3rd pic the bird on the right is Altai, the left one not.

these two saker were trapped in Qinhai, the northeast part of Tibetan plateau, which is pretty far from Altai mountain.

Do we have any weights for them?
That guy looks pretty small, so the saker on his hand my not be overly large.
Isn't the altai supposed to have white diamond markings on the back and tail which form a perfect diamond when the wings are folded?
Sinjari saker, perhaps?

The Arabs call the Altai saker Al Saqr sinjari, Justin. I have a breeding pair in at the moment and fly a lovely intermewed male.

Oh? I'll just get this foot into my mouth, here, and...
I've got a female "sinjari" coming in December from a pair out of Maher al Tajir's project.

Lucky you bro! I'd like to hear what she weighs when you get her. They supposed to be huge things. :wink:

Griff's sending her over for me. I quote, "She isn't huge, but if you put black gyr into her, the young will come out like they're covered in oil."
I'll just continue on highjacking this thread here...

This is she:
