Calandrella brachydactyla (TR:Bozkır Toygarı)
Gagaları ince-sivri uçlu ve kuvvetllidir. Boyları 14 cm. civarındadır. Yere yaptığı yuvasına 2-3 arasında yumurta bırakır. Eşeyler birbirine benzerdir. Bayağı toygar'dan daha küçük ve soluktur. Vücudunun üstü koyu grimsi-kahverengi ve çizgili, alt kısmı beyaz, kuyruğu koyu renktir. Boynunun her iki yanında da koyu renk yamalar görülür. Bazılarında pas rengi taç vardır.
Tohumlar ve böceklerle beslenir.

The Greater Short-toed Lark (Calandrella brachydactyla) or sometimes just Short-toed Lark (but see below) is a small passerine bird. It breeds in southern Europe, northwest Africa, and across temperate Asia from Turkey and southern Russia to Mongolia. It is a rare visitor to eastern Europe (Tomek & Bocheński 2005).

This is a small pale lark, smaller than the Skylark. It is dark-streaked greyish-brown above, and white below, and ahs a strong pointed bill. It has a pale supercilium, dark patches on each side of its neck and a dark tail. Some birds in the west of the range have a rufous crown. The sexes are similar.

The song varies between a dry twittering and a more varied and imitative melody.

Care must be taken to distinguish this species from other similar Calandrella larks, such as the Lesser Short-toed Lark, Calandrella rufescens.

Siteden az rastlanan türün harika bir çekimi. yine makinayı konuşturmuşsunuz Cahit Bey. Açısı ve netliği yanında fon da çok güzel. elinize sağlık. iyi geceler, selamlar.

Selam Cahit Bey, Bozkır Toygarının nefis bir enstantanesi. Çekimlerinizde elde ettiğiniz arka plan zeminine her zaman hayranım. Ben maalesef böyle bir zemini kompose etme şansına sahip olamıyorum. Gıpta ediyorum:)
Teşekkürler.

Hello Cahit,

You have shown well this bird. The image is sharp so that plumage pattern can be well seen. The bird stays fine against the blurry background. You have chosen a nice light rendering fine the colors both on the bird and background.

Thank you for sharing,
Cristian

Nefis bir bozkır toygarı fotosu olmuş Cahit bey..
tebrikler...

Hello Cahit,
A photo in beautiful contrasting colours. Good sharpness and a great composition. Excellent POV and pose.
Regards,

Merhaba Cahit

I really like this shot Cahit. The combination of the plain plumage contrasts brilliantly with teh green background and white rocky foreground.
Great sharpness and composition.

Kontrast renkli flu geriplanı ile göz doyurucu, çok güzel bir çekim olmuş Cahit, alçak bakış açısı türün varolan asil görünümünü arttırmış, netlik de iyi olunca kitaplık bir görüntü ortaya çıkmış, kutlarım dostum.

Hi Cahit.
What a pictorial scene and cute bird are captured. I like FG and its details/sharpness, terrific reproduction of the charming bird and all its features, fantastic BG and harmony of these objects. Bravo and TFS.

Hi Cahit,

I have heard of Larks ever since I was a child but have only seen them in pictures. You have captured him wonderfully with very nice lighting. His face, wings and plummage are beautiful with lovely colors and excellent details. I love the pose, setting, background and composition.

Merhaba Cahit,
A superb portrait of Calandrella brachydactyla with every aspect top class, including the sharpness and how it contrasts so well against the natural OOF BG.
Thanks for sharing this excellent illustration of this species,
