Hello John,
The thumbnail seemed to suggest that this image was too dark, but on opening it that is not the case.
A fine capture of a Missle Thrush, a species that does not spend the winter in my country.
The contrast against the darkish neutral BG is great and the thrush is seen with fine sharpness in a composition, the only negative aspect of which is the fencing. There again, our impact on nature is not to be ignored!
Thanks and kind regards,

That's a wonderful bird, John, very good sharpness and I love the BG, the colours are beautiful.
Thanks and greetings
