    Your photos are great, and even better knowing the story.  It makes me so upset that people leave their garbage & lines with hooks all over the place around lakes.  Last spring I found a robin dangling by one leg caught in a fishing line with the hook still attached.  I was able to free the bird eventually, after a neighbor walked by and happened to have clippers with him.  Thankfully the robin was fine and flew away.  No photos to share, unfortunately.

    I really like all three photos.  They are all artfully done, even the shadows.  Sometimes I like to see some shadowing because it looks more natural, the way we see the bird in nature most of the time.  The house finch is especially lovely with the water droplets and perfectly focused.  I hope to take photos like this some day!

I used my phone apps to ID birds... and started birdwatching a couple days a week. One day I brushed off my old Nikon D3200 with a 50-200mm lens and began snapping bird pics. Very challenging but rewarding when I get a good quality shot! Hoping this course will help me learn how to use settings rather than depend on auto mode. I started a blog to document this journey. It’s 35sparrows.com if you want to look. Pretty humble blog compared to many here! The attached were taken last weekend. I need a tripod more than anything & finally decided on Feisol 3441t because I’m tall. Very excited. I also Invested in a Tamron 15-400 lens which won’t take a teleconverter far as I can tell. It is fantastic compared to what I had before. All I really need besides that is a longer camera strap and a bag to carry the tripod and small things in. A better camera I will wait on until I am better at manual settings.
