Photo Bird Race (23) Oriolus oriolus – Alectoris chukar


Alectoris chukar (Νησιώτικη Πέρδικα – Chukar) behaves as a pet and the result could be such a close-up.


On the contrary with Oriolus oriolus (Συκοφάγος – Eurasian Golden Oriole), one of the “exotic” european species, you should feel lucky if you manage a glimpse. Its a secretive species and remains well hidden although its bold yellow colour.

I was lucky to capture it from a long distance before being observable.
