[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In my last post (see Parus caeruleus), I already told the story of our visiting to Sertavul Pass. Today, I post another tit species from this beautiful high plateau.
This is third tit (Parus) species for me and as I searched, it will be second post on TN for Parus lugubris (Temminck, 1820) - Akyanaklı Baştankara [TR], Sombre Tit [EN].
Mustafa (spalaxtr) already uploaded a shot from the same point. I am not sure that it may be same bird with mine. It was the first shot on TN.
Another photograph of this tit can be seen in Workshop.

I listed species of the genus Parus in Turkiye. The links belong to my previous shot.
*** Parus palustris - Kayın Baştankarası [TR], Marsh Tit [EN],
*** Parus lugubris - Akyanaklı Baştankara [TR], Sombre Tit [EN],
*** Parus ater - Çam Baştankarası [TR], Coal Tit [EN],
*** Parus caeruleus - Mavi Baştankara [TR], Blue Tit [EN],
*** Parus major - Büyük Baştankara [TR], Great Tit [EN].

Hello Ahmet

A very good capture of this Parus caeruleus,they are very similar to our chickadees over here.
Lovely focus and sharpness.
The detail is excellent.
Very good POV and DOF,the OOF BG looks very nice and the colours enhance the image.

Hello Ahmet,
This is an interesting and beautiful bird rarely seen here. Both captures are very fine although personally I prefer the one in the workshop where it is posing very nicely while on the other one you show the markings clearly. A lovely background and both are well composed.
Many thanks and kind regards, Ulla

Hello Ahmet, Nice shot and well composed. Good Bg and nice details. Ganesh

Hello Ahmet
I just love the way this little bird is looking at you. It has such a mischievous look on its face.
Although this is not a colourful bird, it is quite pretty, and I think it is the fact that it is so small and dainty that attracts one to it. Especially the small polka dot eye and the pencil shaped charcoal beak has quite a lot of attraction to it. Kind regards and thanks for sharing.

Hi Ahmet.
I like very cute scene and attractive bird on a natural stone stage. Pose of the bird and its glance (eye-contact) is so charming as well as the colours palette of the image is nice and pleasant. Composition of the picture is blameless too. My best regards and TFS.

Hi Ahmet,
I've never heard of a Sombre Tit before.
Once again you show us (possibly) a new species for TN!
Well composed.
Great exposure.
Good BG.

Well done,
Joe

Buena pose y bonitas tonalidades Ahmet. Solmente le faltó un poquito de enfoque. Bien encuadrada y pose del ave.
Saludos: Josep Ignasi
