Dunnock 1

By FeatherFriend
This shot was taken at 'Roundham Head' which is a coastal walkway leading down to Goodrington Beach at Paignton. I have looked in my bird book, but cannot identify it, so I am relying on you guy's and gall's out there there to give it a name. I think it may be a baby female blackbird, but have doubts, because of the color of the beak.
thank you all for your votes and comments on my 'Nile Crodile' (not a very pretty looking guy), I do apreciate your continued support.

EDIT: Changed the title since I was kindly informed that it was a Dunnock

Super image of a Dunnock sometimes wrongly described as a hedge sparrow because of it's
appearance and habitat creeping around our garden hedgerows.
It's eye gives this I.D. credance which is quite distinctive and difficult to photograph sharp.

Outstanding in detail and sharpness, but what takes this image one step farther is the skillful use of selective focus, ---the foreground features are in sharp focus , the background is oof while adding interest and depth!
