Corn Bunting, triguero

Miliaria calandra


Figaroooo!!!!!!! Large bulky bunting of 16–19 cm long, has male and female plumages similar, and lacks the showy male colours, especially on the head, common in the genus Emberiza. Both sexes look something like larks, with streaked grey-brown above, and whitish underparts. The song of the male is a repetitive metallic sound, usually likened to jangling keys, which is given from a low bush, fence post or telephone wires.


Mediterranean forest, at Parque Nacional de Monfragüe


Camera Model: NIKON D300. Exposure Time: 1/200 sec. f/7.1 ISO Speed Rating: 200. Focal Length: 300.0 mm.

Great Noe and Pili, this one did not stop singing for a single moment. It is a pity I could not record it.
