CHOUGH
Lat : Pyrrhocorax pyrrhocorax
Tur : Kırmızıgagalı Dağkargası

* Chough is the genus Pyrrhocorax of birds in the Corvidae (crow) family. The word is pronounced as 'chuff'. They are predominantly black in colour with brightly coloured legs, feet, and bills. They have long broad wings and perform spectacular aerobatics. This genus is not to be mistaken for the White-winged Chough of Australia.

The two species are:

Red-billed Chough, Pyrrhocorax pyrrhocorax, an elegant bird, distinguished by its bright red, slightly decurved bill and red legs and feet. When in flight, its primary feathers are separated into 'fingers'. The Chough "chuff" makes a loud ringing 'che-oww' call which completes the picture of a very attractive bird.

Alpine Chough or Yellow-billed Chough, Pyrrhocorax graculus

Good Weekends to whole TN Family.

Hi Akif,
Very good picture of one of my favourite birds. Unfortunately I have not been able to get decent pictures myself. Choughs are very rare here in the UK and only be seen in some places in Wales and Cornwall. Very good pose and composition, I especially like the shadow, sharp details, good lighting and colours.

Kırmızıgagalı Dağkargası.
Sanırım ilk kez gagasıyla adlandırılan bir kuş ismine rastlıyorum Türkiye kuş terminolojisinde.İsimler ya baştan ya kuyruktan oluyor gözlemlediğim kadarı ile.
Fotoğrafa bakarken hırdavatçıların kargaburnu denen alete ismi nerden bulduklarını daha iyi anlıyorum.Gerçekten de burnunun ilginçliği ile önplana çıkan bir kuşmuş.
Harika bir çekim gerçekleştimişsiniz.Hem kuşun kendisini hem gölgesiyle ilişkisini çok sevdim.Tebrik ederim...

Akif merhaba
bu güzel türün, şimdiye kadar gördüğüm en güzel fotoğrafı. harika görüntülemişsin. eline sağlık. selamlar.
