|Black-headed bunting/emberizia melanocephala/Karabaşlı kirazkuşu|
A male, perching and soon he will begin his love song.
The males are quite gorgeous with their black heads, brilliant yellow underparts and rich reddish-brown upperparts. The females are much duller although they often show at least a hint of yellow, especially on the undertail coverts and the head is usually distinctly darker than the throat, creating a hooded effect which mimics the pattern of the male. Otherwise they look like big, fairly long-bodied buntings with an obvious white eye-ring, rather sandy-brown plumage, a striking pale wing panel and a rich chestnut coloured rump. The lack of white outer-tail feathers also separates them from most other buntings.
Breeds on wooded hillsides and areas of scrub.
A common breeding bird of the Balkans, Turkey and parts of Italy, easily seen in summer in areas of open country.
digiscoped with leica apo-televid.
Crop, USM, S/H and BG burning made with PS.

Excellent Okan. Considering the camera you've used it's more than excellent. Great example of digiscopping.
It looks great in the dark background with plenty of details.
Very well done.
