Keltasirkku

Yellowhammer Emberiza citrinella. 27.12.2009, Tornio.

 

It`s the darkest time of the year, though now it`s brightening every day. We have a flock of 50 yellowhammers visiting our feeding-places oat bundles.

 

Taken with Nokia 6720 Classic-phone and Swarowski spotting-scope. Phone as handheld behind eyepiece. Should build some kind of adapter to ease the pain of aiming. Phone is not the fastest aim-and-shoot-device on eath, but rather a toy to test, and quite a useful identification device that is always in the pocket. If it`hasn`t been forget to the rain like my old Samsung:)
