[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I will post 4 birds from my resident country and my favourite birds of Finches family(Fringillidae)

The first one is the Trumpeter Finch. It really sings like a trumpeter that's where its name is coming from. Apart from its funny sound, the plumage is elusive too. Take a plain buff coloured bird and wash it with rose-pink and reddish tones. This is the male in breeding season.

We found this pair at Eastern Turkey at a dry desolate hill with sparse low scrub.

Hi Emin. He's so cute he looks like a cartoon character. LOL The DOF really makes the grass stand out for background. A really nice image. Focus is right on and the colours are beautifully soft. Love it! TFS Trevor
