Hello Michel,
A great shot of this pretty little male Rose-breasted Grosbeak. I believe your right about it being an immature bird, as the adult males normally have an all black head. Love the pose and beautiful natural coloration. Great eye contact!!

Hello Michel
A lovely bird with beautiful colouration.
Good eye contact, excellent detail and light, nice setting.
regards yiannis

Hi Michel,
very interesting and nice bird. Especially I like colours. Very nice red spot on the white. Perfect presentation. A lot of details.
Have a nice day,

Hi Michael

Lovely tight portrait of this small bird. The tiny spark in the eye here is what I like most. Despite the use of such a powerful telephoto I think that you have cropped the original image maybe ... rather courageously! Have a great day Michael!

Hello Michel,
