Yes, I can see where you are coming from in your opening narrative, Julia. Strikes me the adjudicator in the middle looks a bit overwhelmed.
As said before, you manage to capture birds in such interesting groupings and 'poses' and I can believe you must spend hours waiting for just the right moment, and if so, how worth the final results.

The expression says it all, Julia, a wonderful group. I would say he was being a bit hen-pecked but it would probably go way over his head GrinGrin

The haughty starling on the left has to be Upper Class, the sparrow has to be the Working Class, and the starling on the right has to be the Middle Class. They know their places.
This is a SUPERIOR image, Julia, first CLASS work, and I hope the little chaffy doesn't get a pain in the back of his neckGrin!

Love the look on the little sparrow. He's even tapping his claws. Asking Mrs. Sparrow if Mr. Sparrow was willing to talk to him. Love it.......Sandy
