An uncommon shot of a common bird. Well done.

They are very common birds.. (I've got about 20 on my lawn right now as I type this ).. But they are attractive birds too.. Great shot.

Nice with the soft BG. Of course one of the best sights in birdwatching is when the huge flocks come into roost for the night:
