Eurasian Reed Warbler (Acrocephalus scirpaceus. A jung specimen learning to fly in the reed of the bank of the lake of Neuchâtel.

This small passerine bird is a species found almost exclusively in reed beds, usually with some bushes. The 3-5 eggs are laid in a basket nest in reeds. The chicks fledge after 10 or 11 days. This species is usually monogamous.[2]
The Reed Warbler is one of the species that are brood parasitised by the Common Cuckoo.
This is a medium-sized warbler, 12.5-14 cm in length. The adult has an unstreaked brown back and buff underparts. The forehead is flattened, and the bill is strong and pointed. The sexes are identical, as with most warblers, but young birds are richer buff below. Like most warblers, it is insectivorous, but will take other small food items including berries.
The song is a slow, chattering jit-jit-jit with typically acrocephaline whistles and mimicry added.

Hello Pierre,
A very nice capture of a juvenile reed Warbler.
The pose on the reed stem is great and taken from a fine POV with excellent sharpness and natural colours in fine lighting.
Excellent blurred BG and composition too.
Thanks and best regards,

Very good pose, just as you might expect from a reed warbler. Excellent detail and nice background.

Hi Pierre,

For me it is a difficult shot cause we focus on eye of living things and here the eye is a bit out compare to the rest of body no doubt it is a beautiful shot by sharpness and composition, TFS.

Bonne journée!
