[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Accipiter gentilis - Çakır [TR], Goshawk [EN] is third and the last one of the hawk genus Accipiter (FALCONIFORMES: ACCIPITRIDAE) in Turkiye. I already posted other two species:
... - Accipiter brevipes – Yaz Atmacası [TR], Levant Sparrowhawk [EN],
... - Accipiter nisus – Atmaca [TR], Sparrowhawk, Eurasian Sparrowhawk [EN].

I met this beautiful prey bird among the rocks at the edge of Black Sea, just after capturing of Calcarius lapponicus (PASSERIFORMES: EMBERIZIDAE) in my previous post. Actually I didnt see it among bushes and rocks. It escaped with a bird on its feet. Probably it fed on a water bird, e.g. Fulica atra (GRUIFORMES: RALLIDAE). It roosted among dense trees in the bank of forest with the distance of about 200 metres. Then it flew for several hundred metres again and roosted on the rock in the shot. This was an adult male with orange-red eyes.
I hope you will enjoy it. Thanks for visiting and have a nice weekend.

Merhaba Ahmet,
This is an excellent capture of a Goshawk, the red eye contact with this male being superb. The pose, composition POV and are excellent against the grey neutral BG.
Thanks and best wishes, dostum,
Ivan

Mehaba Ahmet,

Ahmet bey selamlar,
Yaz Atmacası ...
Hiç duymamıştım.Farklı açı ve kasvetli renklerde, ilginç bir kompozisyon.
İyi bir haftasonu, dileğimle,
Seyfi

Selamlar hocam,
Galiba epeyce uzaktan çekilmiş bir kare ama manzara çok güzel olmuş,
Arka plan ve kaya üzerinde olması çok güzel.
Sağ ayağı sanki biraz hareketliymiş gibi, uçuşa mı hazırlanıyor?
Elinize sağlık çok güzel bir çalışma olmuş.

Merhaba Ahmet,
Bu mükemmel yırtıcı bir kuş tutmak.
Çok güzel bir kompozisyon, tebrikler.
Güzel bir Cumartesi,
Adrian

Merhaba Ahmed'im,
Tüneğinde nefis bir avcı imgesi sunmuşsun bize, sağolasın! Doğal çevrenin kurşuni kış renkleri avcımızın kamuflaj yeteneklerini de iyi yansıtmış, tevekkeli görmekte zorluk çekmişsin!
Sevgilerimle,
Mehmet

Merhaba Ahmet,

Very very far with a 600mm lens for take these splendid Hawk.
Pose and colors are nice, perhaps a little bit unsharp the bird them self.
Lovey colors, good presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice weekend,
John.

Hello Ahmet,
great image of that Goshawk. Great pose of the bird, very sharp with a very good exposure. The eye is very impressive.Photo as the distance of 200 meters is very difficult to realize!
Best regards Siggi

Sayın Hocam,
Gözlerinin rengi bakışları bir başka etkileyiciymiş.Fon, kompozisyonu.. herşeyiyle çok güzel bir kare..
Elinize, emeğinize sağlık...
Selamlarımla...
Elif
not: Lens alamadım onun kırgınlığı var üzerimde Hocam.Yavaş yavaş da olsa ayırt ediyorum kuşları ama daha iyi ayırt edemiyorum diye kızar oldum kendime, küstüm arazilere.Ondan bakmaz oldum, kıskanıyorum artık kuşçuları, onların fotoğraflarını:)

Ahmet Hocam merhaba,
Gozler, bakis ve durusu cok guzel. Bu kadar uzaktan da olsa degerli bir kayit olmus, gormedigim turu seyretmekten mutlu oldum, tesekkurler. Ortam ve fon da etkileyici. Selamlar sunarim.
