[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi Everyone,
Ive been out and about again, this time to the spinnies. I went to the woodland hide there and was pleased to see a good variety of birds from blue tits to green finches. This is a photo I got of a bird I haven't uploaded before, so a first for me :). It was quite difficult to get because of the black and white of the bird but I think the exposure for it is good.
I hope you all like it.

From RSPB.org:

Latin name
Parus major

Tits (Paridae)

The largest UK tit - green and yellow with a striking glossy black head with white cheeks and a distinctive two-syllable song. It is a woodland bird which has readily adapted to man-made habitats to become a familiar garden visitor. It can be quite aggressive at a birdtable, fighting off smaller tits. In winter it joins with blue tits and others to form roaming flocks which scour gardens and countryside for food.

Where to see them
Woodlands, parks and gardens across the UK. Absent only from the Northern and Western Isles of Scotland.

When to see them
All year round.

What they eat
Insects, seeds and nuts.

I can see you have a new Hardware friend Sion! 7D is the most advanced APS-C DSLR to date! Well a difficult shot, Sion the bright back lit is usually taking away the detail and the colors of the subject. But I think you have manage well to preserve that detail. For me however the image does not look pin sharp! The posture of the bird is beautiful and the colors look natural.
