Poor guy looks a bit lost. Definitely a young bird. Viewed ay pixel level these might be a bit over sharpened, but not bad. They certainly look great at normal sizes. Thanks for sharing.

Re: red breasted nuthatch

what a great set of photos, at full sized yes, I think there is a bit of sharpening artifacts, but very enjoyable.

sorry. I hope you don't mind the ID correction, but that looks like a wheatear. would have created quite a stir if you were in the US lower 48 but I think they are a bit more common in the UK, (as I see from your profile).

An excellent way to demonstrate the SX50 zoom capabilities and high ISO shooting ! A nice target too!
