Sherry, this is a delight. Perhaps too often we connect blackbirds with darkness but yours look perfectly at home in their brightly coloured world. I love your background and the use of shadows to make the birds stand out. Brilliant.

I love the contrasts here Sherry!
The bright colors and the dark ones,
the joyful BG and the sad ideas of these birds...
Very well done! Bravo!
