This bird has a very cheerful, chirpy song - but the few keepers I have managed to shoot out of many dozens of shots makes me sometimes wonder whether its non-descript appearance is not friendly to auto-focus technology. (On the other hand, I have rarely taken an unsharp image of the Peewee with its starkly contrasty black and white head!)

Well, you got the image this time. Nice natural colors and good details. You are probably right about the focusing. If the colors of the bird blend with the environment, getting good focus can be difficult. Thanks for posting.

It does look sharp.
And I like its natural coloring going from a buff tan to a muted greenish-yellow (do I have the colors right?).
