Hello guys! I love wild bird photos and I created a thread series that include photos of wild birds, photographed by fellow photographers here in Greece. I decided to make 4 of them, each for every season. Giorgos Goutas gave me his permission the last time to post his wonderful photos more than once. So here are wild birds during summer months that are seen in Greece! Enjoy! :)
Here's a European Bee-eater (Merops apiaster)

and the gang :p

a great spotted woodpecker(Dendrocopos major)

A short-toed snake eagle with his meal on his beak (Circaetus gallicus)

A European goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis)

A black stork (Ciconia *****)

A western yellow wagtail (Motacilla flava)

A barn swallow posing (Hirundo rustica)

A calandra lark singing (Melanocorypha calandra)

A glossy ibis (Plegadis falcinellus)

A common cuckoo (Cuculus canorus)

A Eurasian stone- curlew (Burhinus oedicnemus)

A hoopoe (Upupa epops)

A white stork (Ciconia ciconia)

A little tern (Sternula albifrons)

A collared pratincole (Glareola pratincola)

A Eurasian golden oriole (Oriolus oriolus)

A curlew sandpiper (Calidris ferruginea)

And a pied avocet (Recurvirostra avosetta)

Again, a big thank you to Giorgos Goutas! :)

Thanks for sharing these awesome pics, Despina! I love the look on the hoopoe, he does have a really nice crest! :D

It's also great to see the European Goldfinch, I can't wait till my little fellow is as big and beautiful as that one. Little Oberyn is doing great and just moments ago he gave his first short flight from his nest to me. He landed on my knee, I'm so proud of the little fellow! :)

Thank you Aluz! You know a couple of hoopoes are nesting close to us, so I see them quite often! They are beautiful!
Little Oberyn can fly already?? Omg, he grows so fast and he seems strong enough! Well done!! Of course he will be as beautiful as this one.. and I'm sure you'll hear his wonderful tunes soon enough! :)
