Hello,

can anybody help me with the turkish names of
Cygnus olor, Fulica atra und Aythya fuligula?
It is for a german-turkish information paper on german waterfowl.

Thank you

A short check in Wikipedia brings:

Cygnus olor: Sessiz kuğu
Aythya fuligula: Tepeli patka
Fulica atra: Sakarmeke

Go to Wikipedia, choose the article in your language (eg. Blässhuhn) and change the language to Turkish (Türkçe).

Thank you, André,

I was told before:
Cygnus olor: Sessiz ördek
Aythya fuligula: Sorguclu ördek
Fulica atra: Su tavugu

Wikipedia gives other results. That is the background of my question. Are that synonyms?

Hi,

This site may be of use http://www.kad.org.tr/turkiyenin-kuslari

According to this Cygnus olor is kuğu in Turkish, Aythya fuligula is tepeli patka and Fulica atra is sakarmeke.
