[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
For all mothers, I'd like to celebrate "MOTHERS' DAY" with this shot. Many thanks dear friend Jusni Nasirun (jusninasirun) for your note.

This is sixth post from my Denizli trip. I saw these birds, returning by jeep from top of Honaz Maountain and the nest in old woodpecker hole was located near entrance of the national park. Firstly, we stopped the jeep and I started to take several shots from its window. Later, we also saw the holes on old trunk of willow in restaurant garden. Holes were three and highest one belonged to woodpecker (Dendrocopus sp.), middle one is empty and lowest was used by a family of Sitta krueperi Pelzeln, 1863 – Anadolu Sıvacısı, Küçük Sıvacıkuşu [TR], Krüper's Nuthatch [EN]. The young could fly. I dont know their numbers, but at least four or five. The scene show feeding time.
In Turkiye, there are many thousands endemic animal and plant species, but there is not endemic bird in species level in the country. The closest species of birds to endemic category is this Anatolian Nuthatch.
Its all distribution is almost in Turkiye except the Caucasus and Lesbos Island in Ege [Aegean] Sea.
The genus Sitta Linnaeus, 1758 and the family SITTIDAE (Sıvacıkuşları, Nuthatches) are represented by four species in Turkiye. Other species, with my previous post link, are;
…..*** Sitta europaea Linnaeus, 1758 – Sıvacı, Sıvacıkuşu (Nuthatch)
…..*** Sitta tephronota Sharpe, 1872 – Büyük Kaya Sıvacısı (Eastern Rock Nuthatch)
…..*** Sitta neumayer Michahelles, 1830 – Kaya Sıvacısı, Kaya Sıvacıkuşu (Rock Nuthatch)
