contrast a bit high. compositionally the entire right of the photo could be cropped out and put more emphasis on the subject.

I love Redpolls, they are very cute with that tinge of red. Very nice light and detail here.

A pretty bird - can't say I've seen one of these before. Nice soft light on him/her.
