I feel a story and character in each one of the birds.

I don't know why you're surprised with the score - I love this shot. As many have said, great use of negative space and high contrast, and the lines/curves are great, but what makes it so real and delightful is the bird sh!t. Very nicely seen and captured!

Nice high contrast shot. I like that you can see the droppings dripping from the streetlamp.

great graphic quality - stark composition and negative space (the bird goo is a bit gross -- real life but ikky) One of my ribbon picks

I don't even know how to express how much I like this photo. So wonderful in its simplicity. And the title - how perfect could it get! This has to be a ribbon winner in my humble opinion.
