Here's another old shot of a Bohemian Waxwing, and also one of the very few descent ones I have as portraits. I corrected the background a bit as I found the few bright spots there distracting. I also added a wee bit of saturation to get all the lively colours. Finally I added the vignetting and frame.

Better viewed bigger.

Hope you like it. Comments and critiques are welcomed.
