[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Western Rock Nuthatch (Sitta neumayer)fotografed on the coast of Albania.
The Western Rock Nuthatch (Sitta neumayer) (sometimes known simply as Rock Nuthatch) is a small passerine bird which breeds from Croatia east through Greece and Turkey to Iran. This nuthatch is largely resident apart from some post-breeding dispersal. The Eastern Rock Nuthatch Sitta tephronota is a separate species, which occurs further east in south-central Asia.

Hello Pierre,
Last month I saw this bird for the first time in my live on Lesvos in Greece. It had a beautiful nest on a high rock face. But to far away to make a decent photo.
Nice photo of this Rock Nuthatch in good sharpness and natural colours. Excellent composition.

Hello Pierre,
Nice picture of this bird.Natural colour with active moment made it attractive.
Thanks for sharing,
Kind regards,

Bonjour Pierre,
Le cadrage est un peu trop large et il me semble qu'il manque d'un tout petit peu de profondeur de champ mais le sujet est tout de même relativement bien valorisé.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Pierre,
This is a new bird for me and such a pretty one at that. Reminds me of the White-breasted Nuthatch that visits our feeder in the back yard. TFS.

Hello Pierre,
You introduce me to a new species here with this quality image, thank you.

Hello Pierre,
Lovely composition and captured from nice PoV,very good details and natural colours.

Pierre, bonjour.

Belle photographie dans les montagnes de cet oiseau.

Le point de vue est bien étudié, avec l’oiseau et la montagne en arrière plan. La composition aurait, à mon avis, pu être mioeux étudiée ; j'aurai personnellement resserré la cadrage sur l'oiseau.

La netteté pourrait être améliorée.

Quoiqu'il en soit, c'est un bel exploit d'avoir réussi la prise de photographie dans ces conditions difficiles.

Merci pour la partage.

A bientôt.
