Fringilla montifringilla - Dag ispinozu (40)
|My trip to Kırklareli continues with second posts and it belongs to beautiful passerine bird, Fringilla montifringilla - Dag İspinozu [TR], Brambling [EN] (PASSERIFORMES: FRINGILLIDAE). This species is winter visitor in Turkiye and it can be seen almost all parts. But it is rare for me. Many year ago, I saw it in my village in Giresun Prov and secondly for this year. They formed several groups mixed with Carduelis carduelis - Saka (Goldfinch) and Fringilla coelebs - İspinoz (Chaffinch). Later one is other species of the genus Fringilla, which is represented by two species in Turkiye.|
