Emberiza schoeniclus (Reed Bunting; Common Reed-Bunting; Common Reed Bunting)

Wikipedia Abstract

The common reed bunting (Emberiza schoeniclus) is a passerine bird in the bunting family Emberizidae, a group now separated by most modern authors from the finches, Fringillidae. The genus name Emberiza is from Old German Embritz, a bunting. The specific schoeniclus is from Ancient Greek skhoiniklos, a now unknown waterside bird. The familiar, monotonous, song of the cock is a repetitive zrip.
