One of my favorite birds - don't get to see them often.

Wonderful color and details, and the berry in its mouth is a real plus!

Was this post-processed in Camera Raw? There seems to be a suggestion of some halo like effects around some of the branches, and I often see this when I'm trying to tone down a bright background with Highlight Recovery tool and similar adjustments.

You certainly keep your eyes wide open! How common are these birds near you? The red berry really makes this picture so extra impressive. Good work!

Great shot Jamie. Beautiful colours on the wings and tails.

Such pretty birds these - we get them as winter visitors in the UK, but not very common and hard to find.
