Common Birds: Cirl Bunting

Many birds are common somewhere and this goes for the Cirl Bunting Emberiza cirlus, too. Rare or absent in the north of the C & E European region, this attractive songbird is locally common in the south. For example around the Adriatic in Croatia. This this singing male was photographed.
