A purty little fella. It looks nice and sharp too when you do 'view image' in a new window. Do you normally shoot birds at f/8? I would have thought f/4 or f/5.6 would blur more of the background.

No i don't, but i was so close i bumped the f/stop. I usually shoot wide open at 5.6 but at about 10 feet and 420mm you don't get much depth of field.

Very nice, Steve: beautiful detail, for example on the bird's left foot. Also nice catchlight in the eye. Was that a late sun?
