    Hi Frankie,

    Interesting bird, I was intrigued by the name in the thread title and even more so when I saw him/her

    C&C? (briefly) If mine ...
    I would slightly lighten just the eye in #1 and #3 (exposure good on all)
    I would actually ditch #2, it isn't a s sharp and the angle isn't good, although the placement in frame is perfect
    I would crop a little off the left hand side to improve the composition on #3 and #5 (comp good on others)
    I would darken the blown branch behind in #4
    I would rotate #5 to get the posts vertical

    Hope that's helpful, there is far more right than wrong with them - a good result,

    Cheers,

    Dave,
    Thank you so much for your comments and suggestions! They are greatly appreciated. I had not even noticed the blown branch in #4 - was more focused on the bird, but you are right... it needs to be darkened!
    #2 was one of those... "let's see what people think" because I'm on the fence with it.

    Yes, these birds are very interesting. Wel also have some Green Herons and Great Blue Herons and just saw a kingfisher on this little pond. Lots of wildlife to be in the middle of suburbia!
    Thanks again for your comments.
