And again an interesting bird contest from @nelinoeva, and the topic of this week was - BIRD AND FLOWER
The common rosefinch (Carpodacus erythrinus)
Such a picture can be found in the spring.
This is what I saw in May 2017. This handsome male was sitting on a blossoming apple or cherry tree and sang a song. And he did it specifically here, so that everyone could see him. When I got closer to him, he got scared and flew away. But as soon as I moved away, he returned back to the same branch.
The Siberian stonechat or Asian stonechat (Saxicola maurus)
And these birds love to climb higher on various sprouts and watch. In the photo, a young bird climbed onto some flowers.
The Siberian rubythroat (Calliope calliope)
It's funny, but this handsome nightingale was not at all afraid of me. He calmly jumped on the ground, plants and very loudly sang a song that consisted of various sounds and voices of other birds.
The common whitethroat or greater whitethroat (Curruca communis)
And this young bird explored the fallen tree, she learned to look for food on her own.
The European goldfinch or simply the goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis)
And this is one of my favorite photos. At the end of July, I walked past the edge of the forest and saw several goldfinches perching on thistle flowers and feasting on fresh seeds.
