What a splendid capture of this beautiful jackdaw! I like a lot the greyish tones of its plumage and eye. Good focus, DOF and details.
Congratulations and TFS
Every bird is pretty in its own way and this one is no exception to that.
It still amazes me that they can fly so well and I can't :)
Looks like the bird is walking away from you.
I like the pose very much.
Very nice details and color tones in the feathers.
Very good exposure. Did you use flash?
Very well done again. TFS!!!
Kindest regards, Harry

What a beautiful capture and beautiful bird [not ugly, but bad voiced :)] capture! All are perfect my friend.
Greetings from Cyprus,
I think this Jackdaw is beautiful. The blacks and greys of his head, face, and plummage are wonderful. Excellent colors and details. A lovely pose and a nice natural setting. He is very handsome and he might be insulted that you said he's not a pretty bird :-)

I really like jackdaws - they are quite friendly and inquisitive - and always hang round old castle and abbey ruins.
This is a lovely shot showing the silvered head and pale eye perfectly.

This Jackdaw you have captured seems to be afraid of the camera or a bit shy. Nice pose and composition, sharp details and good DOF.
