Good catch of the sparrow. Where was it shot?

I took that photo from a bird feeder setup that I have on my deck.  There's a peanut feeder and seed feeder with a homemade perch not far away.  The perch is a branch that I have connected to a Christmas tree style bracket.

The birds will land on the perch often.  I shoot through the glass overlooking the deck.  For these shots I put it on continuous when I thought the bird was ready to fly and then I started snapping.  A few turned out.  Many did not!
