One small thing though, don't like the very small clipping of the moss. A little more space at the bottom would have been my preference.

I'm not a huge fan of bird shots as a rule but this stands out a mile, it's exceptional in my opinion.
The positioning of the bird, the colour of the background, the mossy perch, all superb but what makes it extra special for me is the depth of focus, usually the tail or part of the perch ...or something is out of focus, in this case it's all sharp!
Get's my user award without doubt.
