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.
You can also see F. montifringilla on Workshop.
The photographes were taken from car window by equipment on hand. Distance was about 15-20 metres.

Thanks for visiting and thanks to Dr. Beytullah Özkan (Trakya University) for transporting.

Dedication to my dear friend Foozi Saad (foozi) from Malaysia. So, I celebrate his 200th post from here.
