Pretty cool finch and nice soft green background to set him off. The bird himself could be a tad sharper.

great color, love the bokeh, I might have cropped it a little tighter on the left

"A Simple Finch" You mean as in intelectually challenged ? . .

Attractive shot - perhaps could have gone for a more square crop to throw the focus on the star of the shot though ?
