Award Shortlist   

Right time, right place

By AlexAppleby
After spending the whole day sitting quietly in the undergrowth, I was rewarded when this little guy landed in the perfect spot and allowed me to grab a few shots of him. I know it's only a bird on a stick but I felt it was a real achievement in the circumstances.
I'm not sure about his identity as I don't have any books on Nicaraguan birds, but i was delighted to see him!!
Many thanks to everyone who votes or comments on my photos and especially for any, much coveted user awards!

Terrific shot
Perhaps some sort of finch going on his beak.

PS. After Googling, it may be a Peucaea, also known as Cassin's sparrow.

Thanks so much for checking... definitely a finch of some sort. I'm not sure why it is still so hard to id birds on the internet!!
