[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I will post 4 birds from my resident country and my favourite birds of Finches family(Fringillidae)

I love pink-brown & rose-grey coloured finches. Here is the second bird. A male Crimson-winged Finch(Rhodopechys sanguineus)at lava fields of Mount Tendurek which is at Iranian border at extreme eastern Turkey.

It has a large distribution but first described by Gould, on 1838, at Erzurum, Turkey.

It breeds on montane and submontane slopes and in high-level valleys, open semi-desert areas of bare, dry rocky, stony and sandy plains and slopes above tree-line, volcano craters, boulderfields and edges of snowfields.

Hello Emin,
What a gorgeous finch you have posted today. I too love finches with reddish colors in their plumages. We actually have beautiful male House Finches that have the most brightly reddish colored markings on their heads and breast.
This particular bird posed perfectly for you, allowing us to view it's attractive markings and body features in sharp detail. The lichen covered boulder is definitely an added bonus to an already stunning shot. Great capture!!

Hello Emin-This is a stunning Picture of Finches.Excellent composition with nice BG.I like the way you have given space to the bird.Great Work.Thanks for sharing.Regards and have a nice Sunday-Srikumar

Hi Emin,
What a moment you've captured. I love how this little finch posed for you on this beautiful rock. It even looks like he's smiling at you.

Rock surface has a few OE spots and could be toned down. The soft gray BG with its green sports is wonderful
