Thanks to all who commented or voted on the House Sparrow.
Another from yesterday's short stint, as I didn't manage any shots today.
beautiful captured. really love the simplicity of the image.
Nicely done! John
He looks a bit fed up , great image,
Lovely shot. Cathy
What a great shot. Your exposure is spot on.
He is a handsome chap
and certainly knows that you are there too
He looks magnificent, Keith, although he is looking at you in a very suspicious way..
You got a great bokeh and the colours are really good, too.

Not to mention the other four blackbirds that were invading 'his' territory
A lovely image of this endearing blackbird, Keith - has much cropping been done?
Just wondered, that's all, having looked at the lens and extender combination on a number of your images.
This one has had a crop from the right to remove a messy bit of background, but it's the full frame height. The House Sparrow 3 was the full frame. Most of the other bird shots were either full frame or had a slight trim, again to remove a messy bit.
I'm not into heavy cropping. In the old days on transparency you couldn't. But that's not the real reason. I may be slightly misqouting him, but the photographer Robert Capa who co-founded the Magnum agency said 'if your subject isn't large enough you're not close enough'.
