PhotoHunt: Old World flycatcher, Slavkov

I bet that for the untrained layman Slavka and muholovki- most mysterious and unknown birds. And this despite the fact that it is inhabited by our side. The same solovey- who have not heard it? But how many have seen him? And how many managed to see his feathers? So, I suggest you a photo essay devoted passerine birds taken by me in the last season.

Muholovkovye- very large group of insectivorous birds. In fact, all of them migratory, as directly dependent on the weather. No tepla- no food. Therefore, it is difficult to describe the joy when they arrive in the spring. Their arrival clearly establishes the arrival of spring and warmth. 

I’ll start with the actual flycatchers. In its previous photo-essay I have recounted a number of flycatchers, including the gray flycatcher, small, heater, etc. Last season, I open a new species failed, too discoveries did not, but added a few pictures of some species. 

Gray Flycatcher Muscicapa striata constantly hunts, and all in order to feed spinogryzov here such that the dimensions are no longer inferior to mummy:

In this image, the male pied flycatcher Ficedula hypoleuca the nest:

Nests they settle in the hollows, very small and narrow than the fair as shield broods from dangers. If possible, they are willing to take up bird houses, if they are hung up in the coniferous and mixed forest on a tree. 

Females looks more modest and less contrast.

A female with a caterpillar intended for brood. The picture was taken in June, just in time grown feeding chicks.

In adult bright common redstart Phoenicurus phoenicurus I do not carry. Back in the 2012 season managed to take one male in breeding plumage, on that was the end (picture can be viewed at the link inserted in the text above). Just trusting the youth agreed to pose little.

It became difficult for me to agree with robins Erithacus rubecula. Only slightly managed to add to the collection, and the quality of so-so happened:

Youth is suitable to stop, but always hiding in the shadows:

Bluethroat Luscinia svecica — it is the nightingale, or rather its cousin, though sings unlike weaker. I also showed him before. Bluethroat also unlike brighter nightingale. There Bluethroat starless, ie without spots on the throat:

It sat on Kamyshin and beg for food, and the father was running for dragonflies. And catch a big, he shoved it into the mouth of a chick. But getting SmAZ, so dragonflies will not.

And I got them all :)  

His Majesty the Common Nightingale Luscinia luscinia or eastern nightingale. Finally, with this subject of my conversation was a success. He poured a meter or two from me, I even had him drive away to get a normal shot. Show me I have you to it from different angles, so that no questions remain.

Gavel black- Saxicola rubicola — A new bird for me. In the Krasnodar region lives. 

PhotoHunt: Old World flycatcher, Slavkov
 

This sletok found only one ear overgrown and sat on it. It is a pity that he has not given the time to remove it from a few different settings, namely a diaphragm clamped to ears on the field come into focus. It would have been nice.

The Leningrad region occupies the same niche it whinchat Saxicola rubetra, I used to shoot and lecturing,

but there is something new, especially here this detail:

The end of the Old World flycatcher, long live Slavkov! No less diverse family of insect-eating migratory birds.  

Warblers were, lecturing on the link above, including vesnichek and tenkovok, but added a very nice and well filmed wood warbler Phylloscopus sibilatrix :  

PhotoHunt: Old World flycatcher, Slavkov
 

Famous for his song portraying a rattle that differentiates it from other warblers. In the rest they are very similar in appearance to the Warbler, Chiffchaff, browed Warbler, Talovka, Indian warblers, etc. 

PhotoHunt: Old World flycatcher, Slavkov
 

And lifestyle rattle differs from closely related species of passion to the old dark deciduous or mixed forests. In fact, she lives in the same place, and grouse.

Kamyshevki- genus in the family slavkovyh- name refers to their semi-aquatic way of life. But this is only partly true. Different species inhabit different habitats, but they all have a common name "Warbler" just biological similarity.  

For example, reed warbler Acrocephalus scirpaceus- a typical inhabitant of coastal reed. In fact, it can be called "reed warbler".  

PhotoHunt: Old World flycatcher, Slavkov
 

Externally, it is like two drops of water similar to their counterparts marsh and garden kamyshevok, but belonging to the mind gives her a song, if you can call it. It is her special, more rough, like drozdovidnoy warbler. The picture shows the reed warbler in the light of the morning sun.

Her closely Garden Warbler Acrocephalus dumetorum It looks similar, but its dwelling is not tied to the reeds. She prefers the thick bushes, including the water.

Her sletok- first punk in the village, but kept among the glamorous wildflowers.

So garden warbler looks after torrential rain in May. Slob.

Birds are very secretive, and entice them to the photo shoot is very difficult, almost always have to shoot through the thicket:

In the species of this instance I’m not sure, or garden, or wading. And the song was his pranks and songs from one species and another.  

PhotoHunt: Old World flycatcher, Slavkov
  

Drozdovidnaya Warbler Acrocephalus arundinaceus — Reed most of all. Every fisherman knows her crackly song because it sounds summer continuously from early morning until late at night from the reeds. And it makes a nest above the water is very far from the shore, where the water can be a meter or more. But the most remarkable feature of this kamyshevki- its size. She-the largest of Slavkov, the size of a thrush.

But warbler warbler Acrocephalus schoenobaenus— different appearance from fellow.

Rhode Crickets — also applies to Slavkov, and the name they got for typical singing. In ordinary cricket song can be easily confused with the chirping of a grasshopper or cricket. And they live in open fields, overgrown with shrubs and weeds, the same place where there is an abundance of grasshoppers in the summer. 

I showed him in the post at the link above, and this summer I was lucky to see a very rare nightingale ptitsu- cricket Locustella luscinioides, secretive bird habitats and separating kamyshevok.

It is worth paying attention to a very wide rounded tail of this bird. This is her hallmark.

And I conclude with a photo essay, my friends, actually Slavko. They were also presented before, but here only the new pictures. 

Hawk Warbler Sylvia nisoria — Bird remarkable, rare, and for me a completely new. I saw her only once in his life, and was able to take one picture. I learned it in a song, and began to frantically search the branches okatsii. Here are the product of our meeting:

Flagship roda- gray warbler Sylvia communis, letter very common, but not all vision and identify at least once. Hopefully, after seeing the pictures will be easier to determine the type of birds encountered.
