[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Tree pipit, Anthus trivialis, is a small passerine bird which breeds across most of Europe and temperate western and central Asia. It is a long-distance migrant moving in winter to Africa and southern Asia.

This is a small pipit, which resembles meadow pipit. It is an undistinguished-looking species, streaked brown above and with black markings on a white belly and buff breast below. It can be distinguished from the slightly smaller meadow pipit by its heavier bill and greater contrast between its buff breast and white belly. Tree pipits more readily perch in trees.

The call is a strong spek, unlike the weak call of its relative. The song flight is unmistakable. The bird rises a short distance up from a tree, and then parachutes down on stiff wings, the song becoming more drawn out towards the end.

The breeding habitat is open woodland and scrub. The nest is on the ground, with 4–8 eggs being laid. This species is insectivorous, like its relatives, but will also take seeds.

Hello Dariusz,
You have done a great job of photographing this pretty little Tree Pipit in natural lighting. Very sharp focus and beautiful earth toned colors. This particular angle gives us a wonderful look at it's attractively marked plumage.

Bonjour Dariusz,
Agréable valorisation du sujet dans une belle attitude et sous une bonne profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Dariusz,

It's humanity to say "Thank You" from heart, when I receive a comment on my picture; either its appreciation or showing mistake. But it's not good idea to open a new thread just to say "Thank You". So why not through your beautiful picture.....
Thank you very much for your appreciation. Don't think twice to show my mistake in future too.

Great picture of this Tree Pipit. Excellent natural color and well managed BG. Very good work.....
Thanks for sharing with informative NOTE,
