Emberiza melanocephala (Black-headed Bunting) [in Turk. Karabaşlı Kirazkuşu] (Male)

Hi friends, today a break in my herpetological presentations to give a present to one of my heartfelt and trully nature-lover friends on TN, Maurizio Dalla Via (maurydv) who uploaded his 400th posting yesterday, for his valuable contributions to TN and us. I hope you can like this Maurizio :)! I wish you all the best my friend and thanks for all!

PLEASE DO NOT GIVE POINTS THIS IMAGE!

I am here because I am a person who loves sharing, friendship and the nature itself. I do not need flatterers, but also People in search for self-satisfaction can neither be my friends nor can I have any sense of understanding for them.

TFL!
Cheers,

*****************************

The males are quite gorgeous with their black heads, brilliant yellow underparts and rich reddish-brown upperparts. The females are much duller although they often show at least a hint of yellow, especially on the undertail coverts and the head is usually distinctly darker than the throat, creating a hooded effect which mimics the pattern of the male. Otherwise they look like big, fairly long-bodied buntings with an obvious white eye-ring, rather sandy-brown plumage, a striking pale wing panel and a rich chestnut coloured rump. The lack of white outer-tail feathers also separates them from most other buntings. It breeds in southeast Europe east to Iran. It is migratory, wintering in India. It is a rare but regular wanderer to western Europe. The call is a soft zrit, and the song is a jerky zrit. .zrit…zrit…srut..srut…srut.

Hello MF Bayram.
Very beautiful composition.The detail and focus are very sharp .The colours are also very beautiful.TFS

Hocam Hemen hemen tüm yaşam alanlarındabulunan bir kuş. Artık bıkkınlık dercesinde görüyorum bu aralar. :))Gözlemden döndüğümde rüyamda bile görüyorum.:)) Sizde yumuşak tonlarda çok güzel görüntülemişsiniz.Ellerinize sağlık. Selamlar.

mmmmmmmmmmmm !!

İyi akşamlar dostum,
Lovely bird and great present to Maurizio! This emberiza so well captured, with great sharpness and so warm colours. Maybe he is singing to celebrate the comeback of sun on Yamanlar after rain... The background is great and unusual. Have a great night MF,
Cathy
P.S. I give you points... but don't care of it!;)

Merhaba Bayram :)

Hah işte bağıma basıp sevebileceğim nefis bir yaratık :) Ne kadar güzel renkleri var ne kadar asil duruyor. Nefis bir fotoğraf olmuş, eline emeğine sağlık. Şarkısını duyar gibiyim.

Selam ve sevgiler, iyi geceler.

Ciao Bayram, lovely dedication to our friend Maurizio, wonderful singing bird against a beautiful blurry BG, splendid colors, excellent sharpness and fine details, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Arkadasina guzel bir hediye oldu...Renkleri durusu vede gagasinin acik olmasi kareye canlilik katiyor...Sen istemesen de her yonuyle mukemmel olan bir fotografa puan vermemek olmaz...Tabiki bazi seyler puanla degerlendirilemez....Sana bu konuda hak veriyorum..
Herkesten selamlar, iyi geceler canim kardesim..

hehe:) lafi iyi giydirmissin dayi. Arkadasin icin de cok guzel bir hediye, ama ben de diger yazanlar gibi seni dinlemeycem. Nefis olmus kisaca. Eline saglik. Iyi geceler.

Wow, really great photo! Nice and clear! It's awesome how you got it singing!

Günaydin Bayram dostum,
Congratulations on this fine capture of a singing Black-headed Bunting. The POV and action are superb and you were close enough to achieve fine sharpness. The colours and composition are excellent too!
This is definitely worth a top smiley!
Thanks and have a good day MF,
Ivan

Günaydın Bayram hocam. Nefis olmuş. Tam öterken harika olmuş.
Emeğinize sağlık. Saygılarımla.

Bonjour ami Bayram,

Hum! cet oiseau arborant un costume de plumes de vives couleurs, semble radieux et chante à gorge déployée.
Cette composition est des plus ravissante avec cette branche verte et la BG couleur miel.
Merveilleuse capture. Mes compliments.
Belle journée.

Hello Bayram,
My second Black-headed Bunting of today. Great close photo in a lovely singing pose. Excellent sharp details and composition. Beautiful bright colours. Very nice plain and matching BG. A beauty!
Regards,
Peter

Bayram hocam, anlaşılan kimse puan vermeyin uyarısına bakmamış, hatta sizi resmi puan avcisi ilan eden densiz de:) Sanırım kendini TN'in yetkili servisi sanıyor bu arkadaş:)
Düne kadar MF diyordu, bugün yaptığınız açıklama ile de yine delirttiniz belli:)
Fotoğraf muhteşem hocam.. üstü kapalı imalara kapak olsun:)

Merhaba MF Prof. Bayram,
what shall I say to the composition and the presentation is that is far above me.
Congratulation for the bird shot ( which is so difficult for me) and the kind thought that you have for Maurizio.
Let me go against you, I will give a smiley...cos we are happy and enjoy the shot as well as friendship.
Simplr beautiful...look at the feathers on the wing.

Regards,
Foozi

Hello Bayram,
I was surprised to see this beautiful bird image from you since it isn't your normal post, but it contains all your distinctive high qualitiy workmanship all the same. I wish you would let me in on your secret of getting them to sing just as you take their picture. Mine usually turn their head or decide to head off in another direction just as I'm ready to click the shutter.
I have never actually seen one of these pretty little birds, but you have managed to capture it with excellent detail and gorgeous colors as well as in an attractive pose. Great work!!
