Анна Ясько: На 2 фото, мне кажется, не та птица, что на 1 фото. У той клюв ярко-желтый и бровь белее. Разделю серию.


Анна Ясько: Здесь скорее южная по биотопу и более длинному 1 ПМ, чем у большой бормотушки.


Анна Ясько: Желтоголовая или черноголовая трясогузка. Тут бы со спины или сбоку посмотреть.
