Took this off of my balcony. I've been spreading a little seed for the little guys this winter, and this guy (gal?), has been a frequent visitor. ...cheers...Don

Lovely photo but at ISO 1600 I think some noise filtering is neccessary.

Hope you don't mind my rough attempt with Noise Ninja.

I've never had luck catching these secretive birds. Good job!
