Hello Luis,
Beautiful coloured Red-winged Blackbird. Very well captured. Excellent focus on its eye. Good details and sharpness too.
I have captured so many birds against such gloomy whitish BG which I don't like. But I know here we are helpless.
Thanks for sharing,

Hi Luis,a magnificent shot about this blackbird with the red wing,not common to see there.A great capture despite the difficult light and the clear background. Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano

Great shot with the bird's pose showing off the red shoulder patch perfedtly. Well done on retaining detail in the black feathers.

Hello Luis,
Wonderful shot of this perfectly posed Red-winged Blackbird. Excellent detail with rich natural colors. The exposure is right on the button and you made nice eye contact. These beautiful bird are very common here in Ohio during the spring and summer months.
