iNaturalist.org bird list and has photos of over 260 different birds in karakalpakstan such as the endangered saker falcon (Falco cherrug) above. The saker are primarily desert and steppe falcons that prefer open country such as grasslands with few trees and cliffs. This species breeds from eastern Europe, and eastward across southern Russia, to as far as Manchuria. Northern populations are migratory. They winter in Ethiopia, as well as the Arabian peninsula and northern Pakistan. The largest decline of the Saker falcon in Asia is in Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan.
