Was in the second half of May in Greece-Italy. I didn’t go especially for a photo hunt, but I saw some birds new to me, I shot some at 70-300.
Background birds are sparrows, swallows and swifts. Blackbirds, southern nightingales, finches, various warblers and warblers sing intensively.

There are several questions. For starters, here are the birds taken from the ferry:

1 and 2 any petrels?
3. Loafers?

Quote
Most likely Levantine petrel (Puffinus yelkouan)

Thank! Yes, it does.

Two more common (judging by the voices) birds:

1. Mediterranean Warbler (Sylvia melanocephala)
2. And here is the question! Seems to me, this is the Pale Mocking (Hippolais pallida). A fairly large bird without any special identifying features. "Warbler" singing, but short and, as it were, "cyclical". Where to listen to her voice on the Internet?

Commentary on the second example: Hippolais pallida 0'47 "2 examples of alarm calls, song of a M of the eastern race (Greece) thin of a M of the western race (Spain)

Thank! Something not very similar Do you have Hippolais olivetorum?

Olive-tree Warbler / Hippolais olivetorum

By the way, describe the biotope - I myself will hardly say anything, but maybe I will help the specialists.

Biotope corresponding - olive tree on the slope of the Acropolis: cool:

Maybe there is some clue in appearance?

Dimensions! The Mediterranean mocking is the size of a thrush, and the pale mocking is of the usual "foamy" size. The Mediterranean mocking beak is thicker; a white panel should be visible on the wings.

According to your photo, I vote for pallida, but this is all theory, I have not seen them live.

class! some petrels and a loaf!
Most likely Levantine petrel (Puffinus yelkouan)

The petrel is more like Calonectris diomedea, in Russian it seems to be called Mediterranean. The beak is healthy and light, and the lower half of the body is white without brown patches on the undertail and underwings. But this is so, an assumption for further research.

In principle, yes, I agree

It seems to me like a petrel.
according to my book, cory's shearwater (calonectris diomedea), sooty shearwater (puffinus griseus) (closer to Spain), yelkouan shearwater (puffinus yelkouan) - is found everywhere, european storm-petrel (hydrobates pelagicus) and that's all.
That leaves cory's and yelkouan. Cory's wing span 113cm yelkouan - 80cm under the tail cory's white - under the yelkouan's tail (tail end) slightly brown

It's not sooty - it's brown underneath and not european storm-petrel

P.S. I can scan pages.

Yes, the underside of my petrel is completely white. I finally got to Svensson, where yelkouan really has dark areas. So it turns out Calonectris diomedea.

Home> Abstract> History

The Mediterranean petrel (Latin Calonectris diomedea) is a bird species of the petrel family.

Mediterranean petrel up to 50 cm long, wingspan 115 cm. The upper plumage is pale gray-brown, the underside is completely white. Primary flight feathers from gray to black. The beak is dirty yellow with a gray spot at the end. On the underside of the wings, a pale stripe extends from the elbow to the wrist.

The Mediterranean petrel is a migratory bird that flies very long distances over the sea. In spring, they nest on cliffs in the Mediterranean and North Atlantic, and from October they migrate to winter on the coasts of North America and Africa.

The birds dig nesting tunnels from 1 to 2 m deep in the cliffs or lay their only white egg (at the end of May) directly on the rocks. Both parents hatch the egg for about 55 days. The chick appears in July and increases its weight tenfold in a month. Adult birds all day in search of food and to protect them from potential enemies feed the chick only at dawn and at night. The chick rises on the wing in September, a little later (in October) the parents go to warmer areas. A pair of birds stays together throughout their lives.

The birds feed on small fish, cuttlefish and even garbage.

Calls of birds can be heard in the evening and in the morning. They sound like a scream or a croak.

There are large nesting colonies on islands in the Atlantic, primarily in the Azores, being the most frequent nesting bird with 500,000 pairs (80% of the world population). In the Mediterranean Sea, birds nest in the Balearic Islands, Corsica, Sicily and the Peloponnese, as well as on the shores of the small Aegean Sea and the Adriatic Sea. There are also nesting colonies in the Indian Ocean.

There are three subspecies:

C. d. diomedea (Scopoli, 1769)

C. d. borealis (Cory, 1881)

C. d. edwardsii (Oustalet, 1883)
