[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I got this shot today. It looks like the birds are migrating 15-20 days earlier than normal this year. Here's an immature Tree Sparrow. I also should mention that the birds had a lot of late offspring and I'm wondering if all will be ready to make the flight south.

Hello Trevor

It has a funny look this immature Tree Sparrow,

light and obtaining its eye-contact, excellent DOF,
excellent focus, sharpness, and details, TFS


Hello Trevor
照的很新穎 正向的日光 也照的很清晰
眼睛亮麗 羽毛超亮 構圖美麗 謝謝分享

Hallo Trevor
I am sure this little sparrow is enjoying the sunlight, or it seems like it. I like the strong sunlight in this image, the fluffiness of the sparrow's feathers, its beautiful eye and the green leaves as decorative background. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Ciao Trevor, great capture of lovely buird in nice pose, splendid sharpness, fine details and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hi Trevor,

The leaves are framing well the bird. The point of view is showing the détails and colours of the Tree Sparrow. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.
