one from a couple of weeks ago...shame about the tip of his claw getting slightly cut off as I didnt realise I had done it till I got the damn thing into lightroom. The little viewfinder in my midget mirrorless fuji xt-20 sometimes makes it hard to tell.

Can you not nudge it up and clone the nail and branch in? You might not like to tweak your shots in this way, though. However, I don't think it's worth it, as it is already a lovely photo. But, what is it? Some sort of pigeon?

If I was smaller than this fella with those piercing eyes I would run too. Nice capture.
