For the Birds

Or, thanks to the birds that hang out nearby so I can take their picture:

ISO 160 f/3.2 1/200 50mm

I took this photo right when you are not supposed to take pictures, that is, the middle of the day.  Harsh light and shadows are an issue that is certain.  I shot this at ISO 160 but then had to lighten the bird in Aperture so that you could see some detail.  I will try this again using a higher ISO to see if that makes it possible to edit less.  I will be working on trying different angles to shoot from as well.  I did use a tripod, but this is about as high as is goes.  I will have to think about other ways I might get a nice shot.  Any thoughts on that?
