beautiful luminosity, excellent sharpness and details,
the catch-light render the photo more beautiful,

Different and beautiful bird.Colours is very nice.
Tanks for sharing.
I think it is a Common Redpoll, as mentioned by Asbeb. It is very beautiful passerine bird species, like House Finch. especially reddish part of its front and throat show it very pretty. You captured it with a great capture. superb colors, grat focus and POV. eyes contact and composition also great. thanks for sharing, well done
it is most definitely a redpoll finch and I,m glad to know that they are here this year.This species is an Arctic species and is irruptive in nature and they are only seen this far south if the food supply is not good way up north.The pose is good and so are the colours and if there is an area that could be better,it would be a sharper focus,however I know that resizing can soften up images that are otherwise sharp.A fine late winter light has given us a wonderful little bird to view.A D300 is a new camera for you,how do you like it?Thanks Art,now I need to find one of these little guys to photo as well,I like 'em.

Redpoll is a handsome bird, Art, and you have taken a lovely shot of it. Your description of the shooting experience is amusing and strongly reminicent of my own experiences :).
Good POV and framing. The focus is pretty sharp. I like that red colour on the head and the chest.
TFS and regards.

This is a little gem, we don't have anything like this is Queensland, if we did I would be chasing them all over the place, beautiful shot of this Common Redpoll, wonderful colours in the plumage, excellent eye detail, framing and composition all perfect, really nice work t.f.s
Cheers Rick :)

your Redpoll looks exactly like ours.
You have captured very nicely, it's well exposed with nice natural colours. I found it a wee soft.
I like the pov and the light in the eye.

Very good and beautiful photo of this Common Redpoll. The colours are clear and natural and the sharpness is excellent. Evenso the composition and POV.

Art, Wonderful shot and brilliant focus. The bird seem to be in a very sober mood. Lovely view. Ganesh
