Just arrived today some American Tree Sparrows (Spizella Arborea, 15-16cm) come near the feeders. This one was a bit far and I shot it at my kitchen window.

Hi Mario,
As usual you have come up with an excellent shot.I love this picture for its sharpness,colour and composition.
Congrats and TFS

Excellent shot, Mario.
And I thought only people of mediocre gifts like me went for ostentatious frames.
The bird really looks beautiful.

Hi Mario,
Another great bird shot, lovely colour and composition, perfect DOF. A little soft on the detail or is that the haze filter? Sorry, I've never used filters!

Ma maîtrise de la photo sous-marine n'a d'égale que ta maîtrise de la photo animalière en générale. Je n'ose imaginer le trip de faire de la photo S-M avec un réflex digital. Wow!

Joli p'tit moineau bien bedonnant ;o)

Bonne netteté et surtout une très belle lumìère latérale atténuée par un p'tit éclair d'appoint. Le fond flou et sombre est idéal pour mettre en évidence ton sujet. Je sais que ton Hobby c'est la photo et non pas le buchage de bois, mais les deux plus hautes branches à gauche m'agacent. Je te proposerai un workshop demain, ma limite est dépassé aujoud'hui.

Très belle image bien réussie.

Hello Mario ,
What a pretty bird! Sharpness, POV, colors and composition are good. Well done. Congratulations...

Hi Mario
What a fluffy little furball? Lovely capture of this beautiful bird.
The composition and colours are good. DOF captured lovely details on the bird and the BG is complementary. The exposure was also very well managed.
Well done and TFS.

Very nice shot of this american Sparrow Mario.
Great colors and BG.
Like the POV and the composition.

Another beatiful shot from you.Not much to say just WOW.as usual.

The sun is doing amazing things to the feathers. This one sure seemed to pose for you. One would never know it was from the kitchen. Good work.

Sharp detail and vivid colours. Perfect DOF and pose.

Nicely done and TFS
