[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Males 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, 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.

Hi Eyal,
I like the pose of the bird, scratching his head against the branch... Really detailed...Good work! Marta

Nice detail and unusual composition which makes it a great photo. Colors are vivid and wonderful contrast. Nice job!

Looks like he's giving you a good talking to, Eyal! Great capture -- lovely, unusual pose, good exposure and sharpness.

Hello Eyal,

Indeed this is a unusual pose for a bird, but very well taken, more a pose of attack.
Very well done.

Best regards,

Nice capture Eyal, good POV, and well framed, but some notes on this little fellow would be useful....Cheers Rick
