*****************************

The Linnet is a small passerine bird in the finch family Fringillidae. This bird breeds in Europe, western Asia and north Africa. It is partially resident, but many eastern and northern birds migrate further south in the breeding range or move to the coasts. Open land with thick bushes is favoured for breeding, including heathland and garden. It builds its nest in a bush, laying 4-7 eggs.

This species can form large flocks outside the breeding season, sometimes mixed with other finches, such as Twite, on coasts and salt marshes. Its food mainly consists of seeds, which it also feeds to its chicks. The linnet derives its scientific name from its fondness for hemp and its English name from its liking for seeds of flax, from which linen is made.

It is a slim bird with a long tail. The upperparts are brown, the throat is sullied white and the bill is grey. The summer male has a grey nape, red head patch and red breast. Females and young birds lack the red and have white underparts with the breast streaked buff. The linnet's pleasant song contains fast trills and twitters.

They are sometimes found several hundred miles at sea and feed on the ground, and low down in bushes. Linnets like small to medium sized seeds: most arable weeds, Polygonums (Knotgrass, dock), Crucifers (Charlock, shepherds purse Capsella bursa-pastoris), Chickweeds Stellaria, Dandelions, Thistle, Sow-thistle, Mayweed, Common groundsel, Common Hawthorn, Birch. They have a small component of invertebrates in their diet.

Merhaba Bayram dostum,
A superb capture of a Female Linnet with the frontal head POV giving excellent eye contact. The composition , sharpness and BG are great and I think the small OOF plants in the FG give the image added interest.
Thanks and have a good week MF,
Cheers,
Ivan

Hello Bayram,
Love the very low POV you managed to capture. The colors of this little birds plumage reminds me of a type of sparrow. Superb detail and wonderful luminosity. You must have been lying on your stomach to get this shot. A pleasant image to view indeed!!
Ron

Günaydın hocam,
Bu ilk bakışta serçe zannettiğim keten kuşunu güzel bir kompozisyonda görüntülemişsiniz. Pamukkale'den Eumeces çekmek herhalde sizi daha çok mutlu ederdi:)) Buna da şükür.
Selamlar,
Ömer.

Magnifique de détail et le cadrage est parfait.

Thanks for sharing this lovely photo. Pin sharp with true colours and a glint in the eye! Perfect!

Bayram hocam:) bu ne güzellik:) çok şirin yakalanmış. Ağzında yemleriyle yüz yüze gelmiş sizle. Harika poz hocam. Emeklerinize sağlık.
Saygılar,

Bahadır

Un trabajo que rezuma naturalidad por todos sus costados.
A veces no es necesario buscar la perfección en los trabajos,
y yo al menos valoro más en muchas ocasiones esa naturalidad que
la perfección en muchas ocasiones maipulada. Buena pose, luz y colores.

Hello Bayram,
A lovely and very close view of a Linnet being very aware of your presence! Fine sharp details and I love the colours of its plumage. A nice background too.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Merhaba Bayram hocam,

Memleketten şahane bir keten kuşu görüntüsü.
Eee nede olsa keten kuşu, tekstil memleketinde olmayacak da nerde olacak:)
Müthiş tüy detayları, göz teması ve canlı renkler..
Elinize ve emeğinize sağlık.

Selam ve saygılarımla,
Mehmet

HEllo Bayram,
