Today, I participated in the Christmas Bird Count in the Estes Park Area. 12/19/2015. My group was able to log 22 species of birds. The most notable observation was a pair of Common Redpolls. This is the male. In winter, this species feeds primarily on birch catkins. This is the first one I've ever seen and is listed as "rare" in our area.

I see a tad bit of motion blur. I wonder if a fast shutter speed might have helped.

This is fine, although it seems like you could have cropped tighter.
