another brief selection from several gigs of images;  I always pay special attention to the calls of this species and Tree Pipit on Cyprus; it seems to me that RTP has a thinner and maybe more drawn out pseeeeee call when migrating with a shorter and more Tree Pipit like pssseeee when feeding and making short moves; TP's call is much more variable in volume and pitch than most people appreciate and again seems to me to depend partly on activity; the last pic is of a non-red throated bird the exception by a long way
