You are using light wonderfully here and the first three show it in the eye area especially. Nice smooth background and overall texture without any loss of detail on the bird. You are using your noise reduction very well indeed.

Thank you all for viewing and your comments. In respect to noise, the 20D
helps a lot there. Compared to my Drebel, the noise is signifigantly lower
and the nature of it is finer grained and not "blotchy" like the Drebel which
makes removing without killing detail a much easier task. As for the
lighting, the sun was at the point where it was still low, but past the "warm"
stage, which helped. Too bad some of the other birds that were around
didn't come out in the open.
