    Well captured, great soft background. Would like to see him looking into the frame, but I guess the birds don’t always oblige.

    Superb take, just find the background blur a little distracting. Still a great shot.

    What a beautiful shot to find as the last entry! The combination of sharp and soft areas bring out the character of the bird - love it! I find the shot a little more attractive if I clone out most of the empty space on the right - perhaps even adding a little on the left. High in my favs.

    Like the color and detail in the foreground. Background is not quite de-focused enough - a bit distracting.

    Very nice shot of this cardinal. I like the composition overall, and the subtle color.

    Incredibly sharp for that focal length, that shutter speed and through a window - wow!
Great colours

    A wonderful capture and quite good technically. Pose is perfect as is background and setting. And you have given the bird some "air" rather than crop to tight which is critical. Framed perfectly! If I could critique anything I think it is that the overall presentation appear a little dull. I think I'd try upping the contract or using curves to bring more dynamic range into the image. Also, I'd selectively darken the branch so it is not the brightest part of the foreground image. It is competing with the bird for attention because of its size (mass) and lightness. That said, all else is good. Bird shots require at the minimum that the eye and tip of the beak be sharp and you have achieved that here. Also you have captured a light reflection in the eye which makes the bird come alive. Nice shot!

    Great shot through the glass. High in my favs.

    A nice shot overall. The contrast could be boosted a bit I think. The composition feels unbalanced between the left leaning stump and the cardinal looking out of the frame left.
