[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Cetti's Warbler(Tr: kamış bülbülü)
The Cetti's Warbler can be difficult to see as it belts out explosive bursts of song from the nearest bush. If you do get to see a Cetti's Warbler you'll notice dark reddish-brown upperparts and pale whitish underparts, highlighted only by a short pale stripe arching over a conspicuous black eye. Its tail is both broader and longer than most other warblers. Its colour, song, habitat and skulking habits show many similarities to the Nightingale but the eyestripe makes an obvious difference.

This is a bird of dense vegetation, usually close to water. A reedbed with bushes would be a typical site. The nest is built in a bush near water, and 3-6 eggs are laid.

Hy Mehmet
Good job with this little bird. I like the details of the feathers.

merhaba mehmet bey,

Not a frequently photographed species Mehmet, captured perfectly within this frame from a dorsolateral viewpoint with good exposure and focusing, which splendidly displays the birds salient characteristics. TFS this fine image.
