I think it must be a Jackdaw. It's a fabulous picture and he does look you in the eye somewhat!

Very wise not naming it Phil. I did on a recent upload and didn't realise there were so many types of crow !! It looks sharp enough from here and I like the eye contact.

Great. The black on black look combined with the direct stare gives this bird great dignity, as does the way the frame is filled with just the head and shoulders.

Love the darkness of this shot, makes a very sinister image.

It's not a robin, bluetit, sparrow, chaffinch, goldfinch, wren, chicken or pigeon. Does that help?

Could be sharper, but the colour and texture compensate for that. You should have asked him to stand more still.

very Goth, this has so much impact and those baby blue eyes stand out so well. Fantastic piece of photography.

nice tone and the eyes just look at you.

posible candidate for a high contrast red channal tone curve image.

spot on ian
