[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Milvus migrans - Kara Çaylak [TR], Black Kite [EN] is relatively common raptors (FALCONIFORMES: ACCIPITRIDAE) in Turkiye. It ranges in almost all parts of the country as a summer migrant. But it also winters in southern provinces, e.g. Gaziantep, Ş.Urfa.

This shot was taken near Göle District of Ardahan Province in northeastern corner of Turkiye. I have seen it during my each trip to this area. It can be easily identified by cream colored head and forked tail. It can be confused with only M. milvus - Kızıl Çaylak, Red Kite with deep forked tail and reddish and lighter colored plumage. Later species is very rare in Turkiye, contrary in Europe

Çok asil.
Yavaş yavaş bu kuşlara ilgi başlıyor hocam... Yalnız o koca lensi nasıl alacağız ve taşıyacağız bilemiyorum...

Daha önce görmediğim bir Çaylak türünü yanal bakışta nefis bir geri plan önünde çok iyi yakalamışsın Ahmet, ellerine sağlık dostum.

Lyi aksamlar Ahmet Dostum!
A superb capture of Milvus migrans, a rare raptor in Sweden that I have only seen once. But the Indian subspecies I have seen many times.
The POV, and technical aspects are first class and it contrasts well with the natural green BG in a pleasing composition.
Thanks and best wishes to you,
Eline saglik,
Ivan

Cumhuriyet bayramımız kutlu olsun.
