Great Reed Warbler=Tr:Büyük Kamışçın
The Great Reed Warbler, Acrocephalus arundinaceus, is an Old World warbler in the genus Acrocephalus. It breeds in Europe and westernmost temperate Asia. It is migratory, wintering in tropical Africa. It does not breed in Great Britain, but is a regular visitor.

This passerine bird is a species found in large reed beds, often with some bushes. 3-6 eggs are laid in a basket nest in reeds. Some pairs are monogamous, but others are not and unpaired males without territory usually father some young also (Leisler & Wink 2000).

Büyük kamışçın (Acrocephalus arundinaceus), ötleğengiller (Sylviidae) familyasından 19 cm uzunluğunda bir kamışçın türü.

Vücut yapısı ve rengi ile bayağı kamışçını andırır. Geniş sazlıklarda yaşar. Yazın Türkiye'nin her bölgesindeki sulak alanlarda seyrek olarak görülebilir.

Hi Cahit.
You have produced a very delicate portrait of a cute bird. I like framing and cropping of the image so much as well as nice soft lighting, perfect reproduction of all its details and beauty. Well done and TFS.

Hello Cahit,
How wonderful to be able to take such a fine close portrait of the Great Reed Warbler, even if someone held it for you after catching it for ringing!
In this way you have given us the opportunity to see the large powerful beak with fine sharpness and lighting.
Thank you!
Best wishes, Ivan

Merhaba Cahit,
An excellent portrait of the Great Reed Warbler.
The BG acts as a good contrast to the colour of the bird.The details are outstanding with the whiskers showing prominently.
Well done.
