[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This one's for Lori (aka loribird), who is a bird enthusiast like myself. We were discussing the large number of Starling-like birds that also look like Red-winged Blackbirds that were visiting our feeders. As it turns out, they are juvenile male Red-wings. Although this was taken in morning light, it was still a bit harsh.

I cropped, tone-mapped and applied an USM.

Hi Werner,
Nice caught of view with sharp details,
good contrast and light,
Excellent composition and presentation,

Another AWESOME bird shot Werner! And your bokeh is always so nice! Love the OE, now this is how OE works well!

Fantastic Werner, you did it! What a beautiful shot. He is so well posed, and you captured all the detail and color. Nice contrast against the bg. You managed to get around the sunlight very well. Great twinkle in his eye too. Thank you so much for posting this beautiful young bird and for helping me figure out what he is. :-) Have a great evening, Lori

Hi Werner,
A very sharp capture of this lovely bird in such a profile presentation.
Perfect details in th plumage adorned with such subtle lighting.
A little bit noisy but composition is pleasant.
My regards,
