The Great Reed Warbler, Acrocephalus arundinaceus, is an Old World warbler in the genus Acrocephalus. It breeds in Europe and westernmost temperate Asia. It is migratory, wintering in tropical Africa. It does not breed in Great Britain, but is a regular visitor.

This passerineMany, see text A passerine is a bird of the giant order Passeriformes . More than half of all species of bird are passerines. Sometimes known as perching birds or, less accurately, as songbirds the passerines are one of the most spectacularly successful v bird is a species found in large reed beds, often with some bushes. 3-6 eggs are laid in a basket nest in reeds.

This is a large Song ThrushSong Thrush : Animalia : Chordata : Aves : Passeriformes : Turdidae Turdus philomelos Binomial name ''Turdus philomelos Brehm, 1831 The Song Thrush Turdus philomelos is a common European member of the thrush family Turdidae. It is commonly found in well-v-sized warbler. The adult has an unstreaked brown back and buff underparts. The forehead is flattened, and the bill is strong and pointed. It is very like a giant Reed WarblerEurasian Reed Warbler : Animalia : Chordata : Aves : Passeriformes : Sylviidae : Acrocephalus : scirpaceus Binomial name Acrocephalus scirpaceus Hermann, 1804) The Eurasian Reed Warbler or just Reed Warbler Acrocephalus scirpaceus s is an Old World warble, but with a stronger supercilium. The sexes are identical, as with most warblers, but young birds are richer buff below. Like most warblers, it is insectivorous, but will take other small prey items.

The song is very loud and far carrying. It is a slow, chattering jit-jit-jit with typically acrocephaline whistles and mimicry added.

Woww...Marius, Great Reed Warble and Great shot! :))
You captured the bird in nice pose, with superb sharpness and amazing details (the eye is fantastic). Marvellous light and fabulous BG, which makes the subject stand out very well.
Really a wonderful composition: congratulations my friend.
Only a bit thing: I would have deleted the branch on the left...in my humble opinion, of course and I hope you don't mind :)
Ciao! Vanda

Hello Marius,
Reed-Warblers are really a photogenic creatures. In general perched on reeds the plant adds to the charm of the picture too. You have chosen a perfect framing and show the bird in a very vivid attitude. Fine and harmonious colors make the shot perfect.
