Great shot.

Did you bribe him to pose so nicely for you?

Hey, Eric, my family worked construction in NYC.  Construction workers in NYC know how to whistle to make the "birds" go into this pose.  I learned it from my father.

Very nice shot… So, you're a bird charmer (and don't use a flute like with snakes).  ;D

It's a lovely photo in most resprects but it is not really sharp, and that detracts from it. Have you tried post-processing tools to improve sharpness?

Thanks, francois.  My wife keeps my "bird" charming skills in check. 

PeterAit, when I finished processing this image I looked at its whiskers around it beak and they looked sharp to me at both 100% and 200%.  Normally, for me this is a pretty good indicator that I have the right amount of sharpening.  I do not like over sharpened images.  However, given your comment I looked again at this image and I could see its feathers look slightly muddled.  I decided to add a bit more texture to the image and it definitely improved the appearance of the bird's feather separation.  What do you think?
