Default birds singing

So its started raing here, which is a good time to take the photos off my camera from the last few sunny trips out.. I've been trying to capture little birds singing for my new video...

not sure what this is?? but I liked the background, looked like a watercolour to me...

Tried everything to get the redstart, then (in micheal cane voice) I only went and blew the blooming highlights...

Next chance I got he was too far away and sitting on the only artificial perch for miles:bonk:

I really like the first and the third one. May I suggest a bit of cropping on #3 ?

The pigeon shot is a very humorous pose, you should name it "Pigeon Aerobics"

Very nice. I like the first shot a lot, I like the way the background fades and a very natural look with the bird sitting on the briar. Good shots
