From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Yellowhammer (Emberiza citrinella) is a passerine bird in the bunting family Emberizidae. It is common in all sorts of open areas with some scrub or trees and form small flocks in winter.
The Yellowhammer is a robust 15.5–17 cm long bird, with a thick seed-eater's bill. The male has a bright yellow head, yellow underparts, and a heavily streaked brown back. The female is much duller, and more streaked below. The familiar, if somewhat monotonous, song of the cock is often described as A little bit of bread and no cheese, although the song varies greatly in space. Its name is thought to be from the German word ammer meaning bunting.
Its natural diet consists of insects when feeding young, and otherwise seeds. The nest is on the ground. 3-6 eggs are laid, which show the hair-like markings characteristic of those of buntings.

Hello Jiri,
Very nice photo of this Yellowhammer. Partly very sharp with a good focus on the head. Beautiful natural colours and a fine composition.

Hello Jiri,

Lovely capture of this attractive bird in fine profile posture and nice light. I like the curve of the tree framing the subject in the bg and the hazy bokeh works nicely here as well. Good focus and a fine pov. Well done.

What a beautiful composition where the harmony of colors is particularly emphasized. I guess it's a photo you've obtained in very difficult and complicated ... but you solved that masterfully. Congratulations, Jiri!
