Beau petit oiseau, belle prise de vue et une bonne lumière. J'aurais aimé voir un cadrage plus fermé sur le sujet. Félicitations et bonne journée.

Hi Dennis, nice capture the composition is good and the bird's pose is cute. I feel it is a little soft in focus but nice work. Good work.

A side profile might help. Front ways,Female house finch, Pine siskin, who knows? I need those wing bars.
Not sure on your approach, maybe you could have gone in closer. If it is a siskin, they are not spooked.
Well done on the effort and composition.
