Beautiful shot, Jim. Superb detail in the ovenbird-the first specimen I remember seeing posted here. I didn’t know they had that gorgeous little topknot. Well done.

Wonderful catch. Like your use do DOF to highlight the bird.

Great look at the bird in its environment. IQ looks good, but I think you might have a touch of motion blur (only a touch, though). I don’t have any shots of these. Need to look down more!

Jim, this is a cute little guy. I am not familiar at all with the Ovenbird. Nicely seen and captured.

Good pose and detail and the environmental aspect adds to the image.
