[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My trip to Kırklareli continues with second posts and it belongs to beautiful passerine bird, Fringilla montifringilla - Dag İspinozu [TR], Brambling [EN] (PASSERIFORMES: FRINGILLIDAE). This species is winter visitor in Turkiye and it can be seen almost all parts. But it is rare for me. Many year ago, I saw it in my village in Giresun Prov and secondly for this year. They formed several groups mixed with Carduelis carduelis - Saka (Goldfinch) and Fringilla coelebs - İspinoz (Chaffinch). Later one is other species of the genus Fringilla, which is represented by two species in Turkiye.
You can also see F. montifringilla on Workshop.
The photographes were taken from car window by equipment on hand. Distance was about 15-20 metres.

Thanks for visiting and thanks to Dr. Beytullah Özkan (Trakya University) for transporting.

Dedication to my dear friend Foozi Saad (foozi) from Malaysia. So, I celebrate his 200th post from here.

Sayın Hocam,
Arazi çalışmalarınızın verimliliği eklediğiniz nefis türden belli oluyor. Rekleri,netliği, kuşun duruşuyla çok güzel bir çekim.
Ellerinize sağlık..

Hello Ahmet,
Another interesting Passerine post from you.
Having seen sparrows and finches in so many cities I've lived in around the world,I almost forget that they are wild animals,native to some country or another.
You and Gert have opened my eyes though to the wide variety of species and their habits and changed my perception of them forever.
Thanks & cheers,
Steve

Hi Ahmet,

You get such good shots from your car! Impossible to stop and take a picture here. This Brambling is lovely - not a bird you can find in Arizona. It has such a pretty eye and nice colors. A wonderful pose in the tree. I love the workshop even more. Excellent details of the head, eye, wings and plumage in both shots.

Günaydin Ahmet!
A great POV, composition among the branches, fine sharpness, lighting and pleasing OOF natural BG make this a great capture of a male F. montifingilla in winter plumage.
I have seen this species in our mountains in breeding plumage when the head is totally black but did not get a good photo of it,
Tesekkürler dostum.
Have a good weekend,
Selamlar,
Ivan

Merhaba Ahmet,

Hello Ahmet,
The sharpness of the image is impressive showing in great details the plumage of the bird. You have taken this phot from a good POV showing well the bird. Colors are very fine as you have made good use of the light.
Best regards Siggi

Merhaba Ahmet Bey,çok sevmli bir kuş.Doğal ortamında,tomurcuklanmış dallarla çok güzel bir kompozisyon oluşturmuşsunuz.Fotoğrafınız beni,çocukken babamın aldığı "İspinoz Ailesi" adlı hikaye kitabının sayfalarına götürdü.Bir ispinoz ailesinin yaşamını,paylaşımcılığını ve anne-baba ispinozun yavrularını iyi kuşlar olarak yetiştirme çabaları anlatılıyordu.Bir çırpıda kardeşimle okuyup bitirmiştik.Tekrar o günlere götüren karenizi paylaşmanızdan ötürü teşekkürler,selamlar:)

Ahmet dostum,
Biraz yavaşla, arayı kapatacağım derken günde iki yükleme mi yapıyorsun? Bereket versin kantite kaliteyi negatif etkilemiyor, bu ispinozcuk da çok güzel aktarılmış izleyiciye, sağolasın!

Assalamualikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh,
Akhi Ahmet,
sorry really for not reading this until being told. it is such a guilty feeling that I felt when told and only discovered now the dedication that you have given.
Indeed it such an honour to have you mentioning me. Thanks and I shall always remember that. thanks for celebrating my 200th post, may you be filled with eagerness and strength to continue educate and exposing the bountiness of creation.
I always appreciate the creation in its all aspects. The beauty of creation is for us to appreciate and be nearer the Creator.
Like the bird shot above, such a beauty in it finest composition and you have rendered it very well through an excellent composition. Really a beautiful bird. Honestly, the more I know the little I become.
Thanks you very much for sharing.
Jazakallah khairan kathira.

Wassalam

Hi Ahmet.
Both shots are fine. You have reflected all beauties of the bird perfectly. Especially I like colouration of the bird and reproduction of the feathers. Surroundings are wonderful too. Set of nice branches create a charming patter. Smoothness of colouaration of the BG are very delicate and make wonderful esthetic imprecision. TFS and warm compliments.
Alexei.
