Very good shot of this rare bird!
Eye contact is great...Only a little overexpose on the chest.
POV and blurred BG are wonderful

This is a great post. Both is quality of the photo and interesting find. I have never seen this starling. Sharpness comp everything comes neatly together. It's very good. My only nit is the shadows of the cage at the back?

Greatn shot my friend! You really took some amazing, crystal clear shots with that lens. What's wrong with it?? ;)Seriously; when it focuses, it's seems to be in top condition. Exposure is spot on and the details are clear. Pose of the bird is nice and composition is good. The catchlight is there and the colors are saturated. I can't see anything wrong (apart from the visible cage in the back) with this picture. Well done & TFS!

A great image Andy, really sharp. She looks so soft. An incredible looking bird.
Others have pointed out the cage, but this isn't a problem for me.
A perfect image, well done and thanks for posting.

What a lovely shot!
I've never seen this fellow before, it looks really nice.
The photo has perfect quality, any OE areas and great colours.
I like the composition and POV very much. I think it would've been also nice to use vertical framing here.
Overall, superb post Andy.
VERY WELL DONE & TFS

Superbe présentation de cet oiseau que je ne connaisais pas. La netteté est parfaite et la lumière fait bien ressortire les contraste de couleurs.
