Big Boss?
Is he going to be the one to father most of the youngsters this year?

I'd not seen a sparrow in a photographable place for quite a while.

Now that's not an over-exposed background, it's snow on a roof behind him.

Well done on the exposure compensation! So easy to wind up with a dark silhouette blob when photographing small, darkish birds against a snowy background.
