I really like the complete composition here, water, reflection and a nicely photographed sparrow.

Nice shot -

Damn I believe you are correct wildman - should have left the classification as a 'bird of sorts'

The reflection and the small waves in the water do give this photo something extra.

Ditto.

It must have been hard to resist over cropping.

Thanks Jim , it's pretty dirty water actually but sometimes the light just hits it right.
