Hello my friend,
Sorry for my silence and I could not visit your posts in recent week, since I have been in field study. Many thanks for your visiting and messages. My trip will be continue in northwestern corner of Turkiye for a week. I will try to visit TN.


In this morning, we (with Riyat Gül, who is a bird watcher) started to drive from Ankara. In first step, we arrived to Yeniçağa District of Bolu. The lake "Yeniçağa Gölü" was frozen in almost all parts. We observed only several duck species and small passerine bird. Everywhere was under snow. When we went along a park in town center, I saw three colorful bird on Acer sp. (ACERACEAE) trees. This was my second observation these birds in my life and they were Pyrrhula pyrrhula - Şakrak [TR], Bullfinch [EN]; a female and two males. The bird on the post was one of males and feeds on Maple seeds. Its Turkish vernacular name came from its singing style.

We arrived to Zonguldak in late afternoon and went to Filyos Delta. After good observation of swan, bittern, porchad, cormorant, eagle species and others.

I hope you will like this post. Thanks for visiting.

Hello Ahmet,
You really got a fantastic capture of this beautiful Bullfinch, a bird that we don't see very often down here in south Sweden. They're so beautiful and you've caught this one in beautiful sunshine with a seed in its beak. Excellent POV, great sharpness and wonderful colours. I like how its watching you too!
TFS and best luck for the rest of your tour! Ulla

Merhaba Ahmet Hocam,
Bu bana yapılırmı ya! Hiç mi elin titremedi? İnsan hiç düşünmez mi, gören var göremeyen var. Bu kış gününde Zonguldağa gelen var, gelemeyen var. Zaten Aladağların acısı daha yüreğimizde tazeliğini korurken bir de üstüne Zonguldak ekledin. Bu dert bizi iflah etmez Hocam. Bilesun:)
Tek kelimeyle "muhteşem". Emeğine sağlık Hocam, görüşmek dileği ile. Sağlıcakla gidin ve gelin.

Hüseyin

Hello Ahmet,
very lively capture, delightfully coloured, fabulously lighted. I like those exquisite colour contrast of powerful orange read, black and white against a subtle blue and grey background. Thank you!
With best regards,
Peter

iyi akşamlar hoca;

Salaam Ahmet,
excellent colours and excellent clarity. Well captured indeed.
The pose is so special, is he going to tango with a reed clipped between the beak :).
Beautiful and pleasant composition.

Merhaba Ahmet Bey,kuşun renkleri ve çekimi çok güzel.Sanırım yeni yuva yapan bir kuş,sosyal yaşantısı hakkında da görsel olarak bizi bilgilendiren bir kare.Fotoğrafta insan mekan ilişkisi vardır,kuşlarda ve diğer canlılarda da bulundukları ortam ve yaptıkları iş konusunda aldığımız ipucu sayesinde yorumlar ve izlemek daha keyifli bir hal alıyor.Davranışlarını izlemek çok güzel,ellerinize sağlık,selamlar:)

merhaba hocam, güzel tür
En güzel dileklerimle,
Hoşcakalın

Sevgili dostum,
Bir süredir TN'den uzağım, senin bu nefis enstantaneni görünceye kadar puanları tüketmişim, ama bunun ikimiz için de pek önemli olmadığının da farkındayım. Odaklama zonasyonunu mükemmel ayarlamışsın, öyle ki kalabalık içerikde Şakrak'tan başka net çıkan yok. Kuşun aydınlanması da bundan iyi olamazdı herhalde. Kutlarım arkadaşım, tam usta işi olmuş!

Hallo Ahmet
This is really so beautiful and such a special photograph. The colours captured in this image is great. Not just only the colours of the bird, but also the background. It is a very striking bird. A beautiful close-up with details that is very eye-catching and prominent. Thanks for sharing this bird that has a proud and steadily pose, even with the piece of grass in its beak.
Best regards
Anna
