Well done again, Julia.
I very much like the way you obscure the background.
Good detail too - I can see its tonsils.

I keep wondering what you will come up with next as your bird images are always that bit different.
Obviously had never been instructed in bird table manners, but what a great capture as it hurls abusr roughly in your direction.

It's a great take - as Ronnie says you always come up with something other than the norm in your bird images.

...and again





The starling in the ivy now,
For to amuse his dear,
Mimics the dog, the cat, the cow,
Blackbird and Chanticleer.

The starling's an accomplished mime:
Between his love-making
He solaces her brooding-time
By many a madcap thing.

He is the saw, the spade, the scythe,
He rings the dinner bell;
Chuckles of laughter, small and blithe,
Of self-laudations tell.

Now by the battle-field he mocks
As though 'twere but a game,
Thunder with which the belfry rocks
And the great bursts of flame.

Till when the merriment will pall
He turns to love again,
Calling his love-sick gurgling call
Above the dying men.

Who knows what dream the starling weaves
Of boyhood, soft and clean?
A small room under golden eaves
To which the sun looks in.

The starling's talking in the thatch,
Bidding the boy arise;
And the door's opening on the latch
To show -- his mother's eyes.

Lovely capture. Can I ask what lens you used for this with your 7D and the focal length. I'm always interested in what lenses are used on certain images. Thank you.
