I was in the middle of studying for uni finals today, when I saw the flutter of wings. Then I found this little cutie on the windowsill trying to break into the house.

The first isn't great as it was taken through a very dirty window. I cleaned it up as best I could.

I then followed it outside and got a few more shots.

Needless to say, after taking the photos, reviewing and editing. I really need to get back to my studying.

C&C most welcome.

Nice shots! I actually like the first shot best composition-wise. The roof line across the bottom and the close crop to the bird makes for a nice strong graphic image.
What kind of bird is it? I've never seen one like that before.

Thanks for your feedback. It's an adolescent butcherbird of some sort. They're native to Australasia, which explains why you haven't seen one.
