From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Fieldfare (Turdus pilaris) is a member of the thrush family Turdidae. Its English name, dating back to at least the eleventh century, is obscure, though it seems to derive from an Anglo-Saxon word *feldefare meaning "traveller through the fields", probably from their constantly moving, foraging habits.
It breeds in woodland and scrub in northern Europe and Asia. It is strongly migratory, with many northern birds moving south during the winter. It is a very rare breeder in Great Britain and Ireland, but winters in large numbers in these countries.
It nests in trees, laying several eggs in a neat nest. Unusually for a thrush, they often nest in small colonies, possibly for protection from large crows. Migrating birds and wintering birds often form large flocks, often with Redwings.
It is omnivorous, eating a wide range of insects and earthworms in summer, and berries in winter.
The Fieldfare is 22-27 cm long, with a plain brown back, white underwings, and grey rump and rear head. The breast has a reddish wash, and the rest of the underparts are White. The breast and flanks are heavily spotted. The sexes are similar,
The male has a simple chattering song, and a chattering flight and alarm call.

Beautiful photo with very good composition, wonderful soft colours and good sharpness.

Hello Razwan

Superb exposure control to get the fine details and colours on the birdie and at the same time not allowing the stark white snowy BG to blow out completely. Very nicely done indeed.
