Finally we had some good weather today and the light was perfect. I was able to shoot a few bird pictures again..
The second one that came by was a Sparrow, it was cleaning the feathers so intense that the undercoat came thru the top feathers.
A little messy it looked after a while

You have captured some great detail in the birds feathers and the colours are good, shame about the clipped tail.
Nice one

Thanks Steve,
Yes the tail is just sticking behind that twig.
I could not make it any better, to bad...;-)
