Never mind, only a few days left before you travel to a paradise for bird photographers! But this is an excellent winter portrait of a male Blackbird, well presented with fine wintery Bg. I might have been tempted to remove the strange yellowish streak, but it it's no big deal.
All the best,

Nice shot, well exposed!
Good compo and details on the bird.
No snow here this winter...

a good picture of koltrasten, the details are good and the POV as well. It's well seen against the BG.
The yellow strak is a bit distracting.

Very nicely captured Blackbird in the snow. I love his pose on the branch. Pretty good details in spite of the snow and nice colours.
I haven't yet managed a good shot of one even though they are so common!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
I like the specks of snow on the black plumage and the pose is great. Looks like this has been taken through glass. In my opinion it needs a bit of added contrast. Have uploaded a workshop. :-)

ben ooit in een melige bui een lijstje begonnen van poepende vogels. De merel staat er ook bij, maar bij mij was het witte poep. Wat heeft deze gegeten? Hmmm, beetje vies verhaaltje...'k ga maar 's eten.

A nice capture in this action shot. The detail in the black plummage is great, the colors are excellent and composition is nice. With the bonus bathroom action this posting is great.

This is a nice capture of this bird. I like the contrast between this black and orange color. POV, details and composition are very good. I really don't know what this orange thing is though :)... I must say that I liked Pam's WS as it gave more punch to the image. Well done and thanks!
PS we actually have a big snow storm with 30 cm and more awaited; I like it :)))
