Almost a good shot...

if it weren't for the grass/stick in the way causing loss of contrast on half of the bird.

Cute little fellow, sang on and off for a while, hopping between branches and stopping every now and then when he heard the shutter go off.

    [] Just a shame about the stick or grass in the way causing loss of contrast.

    Great capture regardless Dave. I'm no birder but I do know how tricky these little guys are to nail!
