Juvenile Redwing

Juvenile Redwing (Turdus iliacus)

One of these shot's where the setting's better than the capture of the bird. It's not the cutest of youngsters but I had never seen juvenile Redwings before my trip to Dalecarnia. This was the first of them though I saw a quite a few later on.
There was supposed to be a pair nesting at my local patch this year but I only saw one of the adults once.
