This is a nice shot from your archives: this shot of a Yellow-headed Blackbird is sharp, well coloured with difference shades in the black plumage, has a fine Bg and is well composed. Nice pose too!
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Good timing here getting the ruffled and crouched. I like the detail you've got even in the blacks. Nice work on the background however I feel composition could be improved by increasing space below the bird a tad.

never seen one of those in my neck of the woods, so this is very interesting to see.
Well captured, the POV is excellent and shows of the details of the bird very well. Nice sharpness and the colors are wonderful. Very well composed, the OOF BG shows of your bird very well.

Excellent shot of Yellow-headed Blackbird,
Great sharoness and colors,Welldone.
a very nice picture of a beautiful bird as I never seen before. The compostion and POV are very good.
On my monitor the picture is a bit dull and slightly soft.
I know these day we all use different monitors so this could be great on others. I did a WS to show what looks best on my big CRT-monitor.

I love those guys that I don't see here. Their colors are very impressive and this is a very good capture of him. I like its pose, details, exposure and this beautiful BG. This is very well done with interesting notes. Thanks,

Great capture of this beautiful Blackbird with nicely ruffled feathers. I like his pose and he stands out nicely from the plain background.
Very nice composition too.

Nice shot Rick. I used to see many of these here in Calgary, but over the last few years I haven't been able to find one. Image here seems a tad soft, good color.

Are you sure that bird is singing? This guy doesn't look like a bass nor tenor nor anything in between!!!
Looks more like a huffer-puffer!
Great compo! Beautiful detail! Tfs, J.
PS Seeing this reminds us SPRING IS NEAR!!!

Nice timing to get the fluffed up plumage while in shake mode! Lovely exposure as the details in the black are clear. Nice work and a lovely model. :-)

Really good shot. The background is excellent - nothing to distract the eye. The ruffled feathers make the shot. Well done. James

Striking color contrast on this bird, Rick.
The bright yellow and the black together are stunning.
Good range of values visible in the black plumage.
I like the pose of the bird.
