This is a very strange bird. I saw it once in my life and I was lucky because I had my camera with me. This bird has splendid colors and I like the environment.
Great and very special capture.

Hi Ivan, your Common Crossbill is posed so nicely on the tree, and you have caught the light in his eye very well. Only he is not all in focus. The colours are good though,
Very nice capture and composition.
good light and colours, I saw that you used a tripod to acheive this picture, did you wait till the bird was in the three ?

Great pose and beautiful colors, Ivan.
A bit out of focus. Well seen against the green BG.

Perfect composition, colours and contrast. And somthing interesting is that because of resin in seeds they have to eat fuller's earth for detoxication
it's too silly but I am almost relieved that your crossbill shot has a problem with sharpness---like mine a few weeks ago. It surely has to do with the fact that during winter time long exposition times are needed. The sun des'nt help, it is often against you for birds high up in the tree. It's still a beauty, this bird!
Thanks for showing,

an excellent bird shot as all yours. Though sent years back but the beauty will always be appreciated. The superbs clarity especially on the eyes is captivating. The colours really stand out of the green background.
Lovely shot of this paintlike photo.
NB: Thanks for liking my millipedes shot, and that for your critique which is very enriching.

This is something unique I have learnt today about Loxia curvirostra/Common Crossbill. I had been thinking this to be a deformity than a diversity as a result of an evolution in order to effectively take apart a cone. TFS.
