[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The corn bunting (Emberiza calandra) is a passerine bird in the bunting family Emberizidae, a group now separated by most modern authors from the finches, Fringillidae.
It breeds across southern and central Europe, north Africa and Asia across to Kazakhstan. It is mainly resident, but some birds from colder regions of central Europe and Asia migrate southwards in winter.

The corn bunting is a bird of open country with trees, such as farmland and weedy wasteland. It has declined greatly in north-west Europe due to intensive agricultural practices depriving it of its food supply of weed seeds and insects, the latter especially when feeding young.

Very nice and natural picture of this bird. I think that we have this species in Spain or at least some very similar.
Congratulation for the picture and thank you for sharing it.

Hello Giorgos,
A wonderful shot of this pretty Corn Bunting, it looks similar to our female house finches. Nicely focused and displaying beautiful colors. I love the rich blue sky for a BG. Good eye contact with a bit of catchlight. Great work!!

Great picture Giorgos in all is respects.

Thanks for sharing.
