The extraordinary clarity of this shot taken through window glass made me curious about your camera settings, so I had a look at your exif data, Michael. I notice that at shutter speed 1/2000 and ISO rating 400, you have procured a noiseless image with very minute details on the bird. Just superb! I normally end up with an extremely noisy image at those settings.
The drooping eye of the bird with a catch-light in it is the finest part of this otherwise technically superior picture. It does convey the feeling that the bird is cold and sleepy.

Awesome capture!! I would never have guessed this was taken through a window. It has such a beautifully marked and colorful plumage. Great eye contact and wonderful focus on your subject. Well done!!

Excellent close-up shot of the Norther Flicker
protecting himself with his plumage against the cold,
great focus, sharpness and details to the bird's
plumage and patterns, the catch-light render
the photo more beautiful, TFS

He looks cold, all puffed out. Thats a good shot thru glass. I find glass flattens an image but
you have terrific detail and sharpness. The window was must have been in a good spot because
I really like you composition.
Thanks for sharing

Amazingly close shot Michael. Love the detail. Framed well with good colours. He looks more tired than cold. Nice to see one in such detail. TFS Trevor
