Turdus pilaris - Tarla Ardıcı [TR], Fieldfare [EN] is a common thrush during winter period.
It is seen almost in all parts of Turkiye and it breeds in woodland and scrub in northern Europe and Asia. It is strongly migratory, with many northern birds moving south during the winter. It is a very rare breeder in Great Britain and Ireland, but winters in large numbers in these countries.
It nests in trees, laying several eggs in a neat nest. Unusually for a thrush, they often nest in small colonies, possibly for protection from large crows. Migrating birds and wintering birds often form large flocks, often with Redwings (from Wikipedia). I also saw a Redwing among Fieldfare flocks photographed.

Other two shots present on Workshop (photo I & photo II).

The Thrush genus Turdus (PASSERIFORMES: TURDIDAE) is represented by seven species in Turkiye. I already posted shots for three of these:

...- Turdus merula - Karatavuk [TR], Blackbird [EN],
...- Turdus iliacus - Kızıl Ardıç [TR], Redwing [EN],
...- Turdus viscivorus - Ökse Ardıcı [TR], Mistle Thursh [EN].

If I remember truely, today is Emeritus Professor Mehmet Kutsay Atatür (matatur)’s birthday and I send this shot to him as a small gift. Happy birthday! my teacher. I wish you all the best with long life.
Thanks for your visiting.

Salam Akhi Prof. Ahmet,
this is a lovelt presentatrion of the birds. The sharpness and beauty is well shown. The feathers at the ches is so nicely detailed with patterns and that is so lovely. The shallow depth also gives a good effective scene of the thrush in its natural surroundings. The bokeh is simply pleasant.

Regards,
Foozi

NB: I really appreciate your commitment to TN as your profession really demands a lot. I notice the professors and academician from Turkiye are very active, very helpful and very committed in this trek.
Jazakallah Khairan Kathira.

Hi Ahmet,

All three views of the Fieldfare are wonderful. This is a very sweet looking bird with a beautiful face and plumage. Colors, details, pose and setting are excellent. These two seem to be ignoring each other.

Hello Ahmet,
Believe it or not, but for the first time in many years I see a Fieldfare in my garden at this moment. But I don't have such a beautiful photo as this one.
Good sharpness, nice natural colours and a very good composition. Excellent low POV.
Regards,
Peter

Hola Ahmed'im,
Mailine bakmasam bu hoş ve değerli hediyeni göreceğim yoktu arkadaşım, nedenlerine az önce gönderdiğim mailde değindim.
Bu sevimli ardıcı köstebek gözü hizasından, ama sanırım hayli mesafeden çok güzel, başarılı ve net bir çekimle yakalamışsın, eee, f-600mm lik mercek de boş yere taşınmıyor arazide tabii ki, ama böyle bir enstantane yakalanınca da zahmete deyiyor muhakkak.
Nazik hediyene tekrar teşekkürler arkadaşım, umarım yokluğumda yüklediğin diğert karelere de bakabilirim ilerde, bugün buna bile "smile" veremiyorum ne yazık ki...
Mehmet

Una fotografía maravillosa. El pleno foco en el ave del primer plano recortada del fondo pero sin dejar de formar conjunto con el ave del segundo plano, gran nitidez en el césped del pie de la obra y la luz dorada que baña toda la imagen, son virtudes que hacen a la belleza de tu creación. Felicitaciones y un abrazo desde la República Argentina, Ahmet.
