Default Bird wildlife in Greece

Hello guys! Some people have amazing hobbies! I recently discovered on Facebook the page "Photographers without borders"
https://www.facebook.com/groups/1270..._comment_reply
and I saw magnificent pictures of sceneries and of course, birds!
One of the members of this group page, Thomas Nikolopoulos takes wonderful pictures of wild birds and I asked him if I could post some of his pictures. He gave me his permission so now you can all see pictures of wild birds living - and flying- in Greece.
So this is a European Robin (Erithacus Rubecula)

This is a long-legged buzzard (Buteo rufinus)
This is a Dunnock (Prunella Modularis)

This is a Song-thrush (Aegithalos caudatus)

This is a Rock-bunting (Emberiza cia)

That's a Linnet (Carduelis Cannabina)

This is a Gadwall (Anas strepera) I really like this duck

That bird is a Eurasian Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus)

This is a Brambling (Fringilla montifringilla)

A European Kestrel (Falco tinnunculus)

And a Songthrush (Turdus philomelos)

A big thank you to Thomas Nikolopoulos! Hope you enjoyed it!

Those are beautiful birds. It's hard to get pictures of birds as they never keep still long enough!
Thank you for sharing.

They are wonderful pictures Despina.

The Kestrel is magnificent, and I love the duck. I have a big soft spot for ducks as we bred ducks when I was little. We had them for egg production. They are really quite smart. The Buzzard is great too. There are some Black Breasted Buzzards at a bird park near me and I have been having a love affair with one for years. They are an Australian species. They are one of our largest birds of prey. You may like to see him, here is the link to him.

Hey Kate! I love all birds- big or small- but the Kestrel's colours surprised me! I like the Buzzards, hawks and eagles it's always great when I see them fly in the skies! I also loved the picture in that link- I can see why you love them so much!
And ducks are the cutest birdies!
