Nice shot, I will be posting one myself tomorrow. Just had these birds start visiting my area and are they tough to get to land in the branches, they appear to love staying on the ground! Anyways nice detail and good exposure, a fine job on the whites.

What a great find in your archives! Super capture of a species of American sparrow new to me. This sharp, well composed and well presented after your PP work.
The winter is lousy here too, so I'm digging into my archives as well!
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Beautiful little sparrow and very nice captured. Very natural colours, great sharpness with plenty of details in the plumage and perfect composition with the sparrow out of centre which we do not see very often here as most people often have the main subject in the centre of the picture. I also like his (I suppose it is a male) attitude with his head high and the little reflex in the eye. Very good informative note too.

Superb shot, with fantastic detail, color and composition. The kids will gone all to soon then, they bring grandkids home, I just got a new one named Jaicob.
it's a vey nice picture with good details and lovely colours.
I realy like the low POV and the composition.
I did a WS, not for your picture need it but for me to testthe new PS CS3 Beta version, I hope you don't mind.
Very well done, mf.

Very nice capture of this beautiful sparrow in a nice pose. Pretty sharp and good focus on the head. Looks good against the snow. Interesting note too.
TFS and regards, Ulla
What a splendi capture here with this wonderful white throated sparrow!
I really like it's colors on the bird and the pattern formed by the colors of its feathers.
Also the POV is excellent here and the sharpness is great!
I also like he DOF very much - keeping the sparrow well in focus vut blurring part of the BG nicely.
Hope you don't mind me addin a workshop, too...i know Gert added one, but i think the contrast is a bit too strong there..
Anyway, a superb catch!
Bravo and TFS

This is a beautiful capture of a little guy that I have never seen here. Your notes are very interesting. I would be very curious to see this hybrid you talk about :) I like the pose of this little fellow with those nice details, composition and POV. Are the birds in America are easier to approach than European one? I can't tell because I never shot birds in Europe but I guess it depends in which region you are. I know that in the big cities like Montreal for example, birds are much easily approachable but if you go to the country or in small town like mine, it is very different. Well done!

Nice shot - just found one of these in my back yard, and couldn't identify it till one of our co-contributers, shyanni, came up with the correct ID. The snow shows off the characteristics very well.
