Good morning, this photo shows a common finch of Africa. A Cut-throat(Amadina fasciata) from Rift Valley, Ethiopia! A gift for traveling birders around the world.

Afrika'nın yaygın kuşlarından biri olan Kesik boyun. İnanılmaz güzel değil mi? Dünyayı gezen kuşçulara armağan olsun. Etiyopya'dan...

Hello Emin,
My second posting here on TN was a photo of a Cut-throat Finch in December 2006. I made the photo in South Africa where it was sitting on a nest full of chicks.
Excellent photo in great sharpness, details, beautiful colours and a nice composition.

Hola Emin, que hermosa especie, un lujo verla en estado silvestre, me gusta la composición, la luz, la percha y el entorno...saludos.

Hi Emin!
Great shot of this lovely variety of finch. Great details on its body.Finches always look adorable and this particular one with a red ring is a cute one too. Despite dominating browns everywhere your subject has a great contrast with BG.Well done and thanks for sharing,
Best Regards,

This pic honours your name - great portrait!

Es un pájaro común en Africa, pero para mi, para un argentino,
es un pájaro raro y la fotografía muy bien compuesta, donde la armonía de los colores pardo-ceniza se ve enriquecida por la brillante franja roja que cruza la mejilla de esta Amadina fasciata. Felicitaciones Emin!!!!

Excellent photo, with the bird well off the background and showing off its red throat and its more subdued brown markings. Well done.
