Hi Bro,
Nice work. Your pics are really impressive. Definitely this will bring us more information on Iranian endemic birds and might consequently eventuate to some valuable projects to save some parts of them. We need the government help in putting more money to reduce the jeopardize of their living habitats.smilies/wink.gif
