[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Eremophila alpestris (L., 1758) - Kulaklı Toygar [TR], Shore Lark [EN]:
is a member of the lark family Alaudidae. It is a small bird with 14-15 cm lenght. It has two long feathers on its head like horn or ears. Turkish name means "eared" lark.
It prefer high altitudes and alpine zones. In winter, it can be seen lower altitude. After snow, it migrates higher zones.
The species are often found in the Toros (Taurus) Mts.
The Aladağlar Mts is a part of middle Toros Mts range.

Additional information about the species can be found on Wikipedia.

The photograph was taken alpine zone at c. 2900 m a.s.l. when it ate some insects around small water source. It was very hot and very shiny. Then it gave many poses to me and the photograph was taken from car window (c. from 4-5 m). I present this shot without cropping.
