Fieldfare (Turdus pilaris)

Not a nice day but lot of bird activity. I was attracted by a flock of fieldfares feeding with the berries of a common hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna). I waited near the bush for the birds to continue feeding. It happened but even if not frightened by my presence the birds kept some twigs between them and my photo camera. This is one of the best photos I could take.

They can be wee devils, can't they Cristian. You did well to get the focus on him.

A lovely autumnal picture.
I like the focus and atmosphere in this very nice composition.
Lovely Fieldy capture, taken in difficult conditions, well done Cris.
Nice setting for this beautiful Fieldfare Cristian, well done and thanks for the Birthday Greetings my friend.
This is quite lovely Cristian! The berries certainly liven up this lovely gray day image
