I'm skating on thin ice as far as the ID is concerned so I'll settle for LRJ's (little red job's) or maybe LOR's (little olive jobs). The composition with a shot like this could have a myriad possible computations so who am I to say how it should have been. However, having said that I can not neglect to mention that I seem to miss a real central POV.
Exposure and lighting was very well handled with nice detail on the whites, the DOF is well done through the f/7.1 aperture, and the colours are good.
Well done and TFS.

you captured so wonderful birds for us.
They are so pretty, special the red one - of course. I've never seen this kind of bird here in Germany, but we also have nice birds and I'm happy that I had so many different in my garden this winter. Thanks for your shot

Hi JP, wht a lovely scene with all the birds in the snow. Is there 2 different types of bird here? TFS

The big birds are Pine Grosbeaks (male is red, juvenile and female with yellow wash). Teh small birds could either be redpolls or possibly pine siskins. I can't see the face to be sure.

Tres belle scène ces durbec Jean Paul. Ils ont l'air de surveiller les Siserin au centre. Par contre la neige est un peu surexposé. Pas facile les photos dans la neige.

Belle brochette d'oiseaux ! C'est clair et net même si c'est difficile d'exposée sur la neige. Bravo et merci,

Uma excelente foto em um bom momento. Muito boa composição. Com boas cores e nitidez.
Tive o prazer de completar seus pontos para o 'quadrado' do WS (pontos)... parabéns. Vai ficar tudo dourado... He... He...
An excellent picture in a good moment. Very good composition. With good colors and clearness.
I had the pleasure to complete their points for the 'square' of WS (points)... congratulations. It will be everything gold... He... He...

A bunch of birds eating seads on the ground is likely to give no good result. I'm amazed because you got a brilliant result. Colors are good. Composition is great.
quel bel oiseau ce Durbec, j'ai eu la chance d'en apercevoir cette hiver, petite question, savez-vous s'ils sont au Québec seulement l'hiver? je n'en ai pas vu pendant l'été. Une très belle prise, beau travail,
