Hello Marius,
Your Hawfinch is very attractive and has very unique body features. The large heavy duty ivory colored bill almost looks out of place for the size of the bird. Beautiful buff coloring on it's breast and pretty rufous coloring on it's crest and cheek. Love the coal black half mask and intense gaze on it's face. Super sharp focus and displayed against a gorgeous blue sky for a BG. Well done!!

WONDERFUL image with beautiful color and pose.
