Comment:A resubmission to replace an earlier post, with more open cropping and improved processing. This version is a substantial recomposition from the previous centred and closely cropped image, and shows more of the Dogwood tree the bird is foraging for seeds. Shade photos of this species seem to do the best job of highlighting the very attractive iridescent blue colour on wings and tail.
A small flock of these birds mostly flushed on seeing me but this individual held its ground, possibly out of curiosity but perhaps also due to the good food supply which it now had to itself!

EF 100-400mm L IS MkI zoom at 400mm, handheld
1/500 sec, f5.6, ISO 400
