[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My last posts were species of water birds. But this is terrestrial and it belongs to Miliaria calandra (Linnaeus, 1758) – Tarla Kirazkuşu, Tarla Çintesi [TR], Corn Bunting [EN]), which is a member of the bunting family Emberizidae of passerine bird. Of these species,
Emberiza melanocephala was posted previously to TN.
In Turkiye, M. calandra, ranging in Palaearctic Region, is a single species of the genus Miliaria Brehm, 1831, whereas the family Emberizidae is represented by 16-17 species.
Most of them show sexual dimorphism. But both sexes in M. calandra are similar each other and they look something like larks and sparrows.

This photo was taken coast of Gölova Lake near Gölova District of Sivas Province. Originally the photo contains three buntings. But I cropped and omitted two individuals on image for this composition.
I hope you will find this version acceptable.

Hello Ahmet,
I like this little bird, we normally get a few of them down here in the south and it's easy to recognise them by their song. Excellent capture of this one in profile in beautiful light. Great sharpness, fine colours and a lovely composition.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Dr güzel bir kuş. Netlik ve kompozisyon da çok.

Hello Ahmet,
Fantastic photo of this Bunting. Very beautiful natural colours and great sharpness. The composition is perfect to me. Nice pose.

Nice exposure and color Ahmet.
An excellent ccomposition, with the slate blue BG and evergreen perch working together nicely..Great detail, DOF, POV, and catchlight also. The plant extreme top right corner should come out IMHO.
Well done!

Hello Ahmet,
I love the composition of this picture, he sits on wonderful pose on the branch. Great POV and composition, the BG is also

Hi Ahmet

This is a beauty, I love the delicate markings on this bird. It is a crisp clear shot with a beautiful composition



Ahmet, this reminds me of the old matchbox card and teabag box images of my childhood years. I'd forgotten all about them until just now. The advantage is what you've done here is so much bigger, brighter, sharper, more vivid. Fine bit of composition on this branch, too. This is one to be proud of!

beautiful and sharp, though a little too dark, TFS Ori
