Fulica atra 2
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Fulica atra (TUR: Sakar meke, ENG: Eurasian Coot): This is the second photo of Coot I upload. This bird is dne of the most abundant water bird around this area. |
The Coot breeds across much of the Old World on freshwater lakes and ponds. It is resident in the milder parts of its range, but migrates further south and west from much of Asia in winter as the waters freeze.
The Coot is much less secretive than most of the rail family, and can be seen swimming on open water or walking across waterside grasslands. It is an aggressive species, and strongly territorial during the breeding season.

Gayet güzel bir zamanlama güzel bir kare tebrik ederim Pozlaması da güzel.
You did nice work by capturing this sakar meke with good quality.
The head in the front take little bit attention but not big deal.
TFS and have nice weekend.
Dr, araya karakedi değil de bu sefer beyaz-sanırım karabaş- martı girmiş; bizim araya da virüs nedeniyle msn girdi.
güzel poz, bakışı iyi yakalamışsın. eline sağlık, selamlar.
He looks like he was caught doing something he shouldn't have been doing. The OOF bird head is a little distracting, but there's not much you could do about it. You can't crop out Coot's feet and the area is to detailed for clone tool. Great shot even with the disembodied head:) TFS
