|and the last one of the rose-brown finches serie. Not the best as it brigtness and the saturation is not clear like the previous ones however the rarest of all! It is a bird in Western Palearctic, many birders eager to see but fail to find it. There is not many photos of it in the region.|
A rare sighting of a Mongolian Finch in Van region, Turkey. It is at its westernmost breeding grounds however, in Turkey that breeding grounds are called 'extreme east' I like this male in breeding plumage and just after a display flight.(see the lower wings) I always like the combination of pink and pale brown. Beautiful :)
Is this enough from Turkey or should i continue with some more rare beauties? :)

Very beautiful photo of this rare finch, the male of the Mongolian Finch. Very nice to see it in these bright colours. Fine sharpness and blurry background. Congratulations on this special presentation.
Why should this be enough of Turkey? I hope you got a lot more of these beauties.
By all means please continue posting more of these beautiful birds from Turkey. The light pinkish colors intermingled with white, black and cinnamon brown is quite the elegant attire for this pretty little finch.
We have Gold Finches and House Finches here in my area of Ohio. I would love to see one of these colorful birds someday.
You mentioned you were not pleased with the contrast, so I tried to see what I could do in a WS.
