Behind snow mounds

X aIMG_4475

Even if they are common birds (well, for me no bird is common but each is special), corn buntings (Emberiza calandra) are among my favorite species.

During winters, they search for seeds amidst snow mounds.

I like those snow flakes on bird’s wings.

I usually show full birds, or at least as many details of a bird as I can, but for this photo you may have to use your imagination.

    1. Thank you.
      Be sure you will see this bird soon.
      I will write a post and with some information about it and I will search for some photos with entire bird.

  1. That is a really lovely photo. A very determined (or hungry) bird to be digging in the snow like that. This bird is new to me, I shall have to look it up.

    1. Thank you.
      It’s a bird spread across southern and central Europe, north Africa and Asia, as I have read on wikipedia.
      I will post more photos of it soon, I hope.

  2. this is a wonderful photo–much more interesting than a plain profile of a bird, no matter how beautiful. This gives a bit of the bird’s determination and personality, as well as his beauty, tells a bit of a story.

  3. Cornel, I have said this before and I’m saying it again: you are one of the most creative photographers I have ever come across. What an amazing photo!

    1. Creative? 🙂
      Thank you!
      Before I will post my next article, please try to imagine the connection between the photo above and a Drying Laundry Rack. 😀
      You said creative. Ha, ha.

    1. You have there many Chaffinches but I have many buntings, especially when it’s cold and the ground is coated with snow.
      Thank you for your time, visit and comment.
