Eurasian Dotterel
Infos from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Eurasian Dotterel

Scientific classification
Kingdom: Animalia

Phylum: Chordata

Class: Aves

Order: Charadriiformes

Family: Charadriidae

Genus: Charadrius

Species: C. morinellus


Binomial name
Charadrius morinellus
Linnaeus, 1758
The Eurasian Dotterel (Charadrius morinellus), or in Europe just Dotterel, is a small wader in the plover family of birds.

Orange:Breeding range Blue:Wintering rangeIt breeds in the Arctic tundra of northern Eurasia from Norway to eastern Siberia, and on suitable mountain plateaus such as the Scottish highlands and the Alps. It nests in a bare ground scrape and lays two to four eggs.

This species is migratory, wintering in a narrow belt across north Africa from Morocco eastwards to Iran. Migration stopovers are traditional, and small parties (trips) of Dotterels pass through each year at these usually inland arable or grassy sites. The winter habitat is semi-desert.

This plover is smaller and more compact than Eurasian Golden Plover. It has a striking whitish supercilium in all plumages, and has plain wings in flight. Adults in summer are unmistakable, with a chestnut breast bordered above with white, black belly and warm brown back. The legs are yellow and the short bill black. As with the phalaropes, the female is brighter than the male. The male dotterel generally is responsible for incubation and looks after the chicks. In most cases the cock dotterel successfully prevents other males getting to his mate and fertilizing her eggs. He usually rears chicks that he has fathered.

Only 4.6% (2/44) of chicks were not the genetic offspring of the caring male corresponding to 9.1% (2/22) broods affected.

Winter birds lack the rich underpart coloration, apart from the white breast line, and are greyer above. Young birds are similar, but have a scaly appearance to their backs.
The Dotterel's food is insects and other small invertebrates such as snails and worms and shellfish. These are obtained by a run-and-pause technique, rather than the steady probing of some other wader groups.

The flight call is a soft pyurr. The female's song is a simple repetitive whistle.

The Eurasian Dotterel is one of the species to which the Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds (AEWA) applies.

Ahhhhh... :) Dostum Ömer, bu jestini unutmam artık. Araziye beni senin bu Riva dilberini göstermeden göndermediğin için çok teşekkürler. Ayrıca sen de bu özel günde duyarlı olup kutladığın için ayrıca teşekkür ederim. Ulusal egemenlik ve Çocuk Bayramı'mız kutlu olsun.
Dilberin rüzgarda açılan tüyleri kareye estetik katmış. Tam sanatsal bir çalışma olmuş. Fotoğraf kalitesini söylemeye ihtiyaç bile duymuyorum. 800 mm'yi de güle güle kullanmanı diliyorum. Sana yetişmek zor. 12 bin dolara ben araba alırım:)
(-bu sözümü bana daha sonra hatırlatacağından eminim:)-.
Sağlıcakla kal dostum... En kısa zamanda görüşmek dileğiyle...

Bayram

Ömer Bey, epeyce uzun bir aradan sonra yeni çekimlerinizi görmek ne güzel. Bayram hocaya yazdıklarınızı ve onun size yazdıklarınızı okuduktan hemen sonra bu yüklediğinizi fark ettim. Ama Hoca benden hızlı çıktı. Emeğinize sağlık. Harika bir çekim oldu.
Selamlar,

Hello Omer,
what a wonderful picture of Charadrius morinellus taken from an excellent POV with superb sharpness, the colours of the bird are fantastic against a very good neutral BG, i like the very nice composition with the eye contact.
TFS
Best regards
Maurizio

bir hele şükür dedim:)) nefis bir kare ile tekrar hoşgeldiniz, Ömer Bey. haksız sayılmam; karelerinizin her biri ayrı ayrı mükemmel. sabah Riva demiştim. içimden de bu tür geçmişti ama Rivada pekçok güzel tür olunca, hepsini yazmamıştım. açısı, göz teması, netliği, renkleri ve fonu ile nefis bir çalışma olmuş. bunun da bokeh etkisi çok güzel. objektifinizi tekrar güle güle kullanın.
milli bayramımızı kutladığınız için ayrıca teşekkürler. hepimize kutlu olsun.
arayı fazla açmadan tekrar yeni karelerinizi görmek dileğiyle hoşçakalın. selamlar.

Hallo Omer
Absolutely splendid. Awesome details captured on the plumage. A real delight and pleasure to look at. Just love the stripes over the head, it almost gives the impression that the feathers have been "combed" for the occasion. I also like the slight blink in the eye captured. Thanks for sharing this lovely and classy bird in celebration of Childrens day. Best regards.

A superb capture of a Dotterel, a species that is not easy to see and photograph. Though the feathers are a little ruffled the sharpnes and colours of this female are excellent and the Bg shows it up very well from this fine low POV.

Hello Omer !
Poor bird standing in the wind, his feathers will be all ruffled ! :-) I have had the same thing with a White Stork, some days ago, his long feathers were standing very oddly because of the wind. I lovethe details, the colors, the composition and the POV of this picture, and the pose of the bid is great, too. Very well done !

Can't express in words how delighted I am to see your great work after a long time, Omer.
This bird with its wings rufffled by the wind looks so pretty, cute and adorable.

The particular lighting and the superb colours make this picture an outstanding one. At a first glance, the picture seems to be a little bit too dark, but soon it appears to be the perfect lighting underlining the beauty of the bird at best.
