I'm not much of a "birder." (That's an understatement.) My wife saw this Yellow Finch in our backyard and since I am interested in the tight cropping ability of the D3200 for a future trip, I thought that I would see what I could do. The exposure in these shots isn't on the money so letting the ISO float to 3200 was a mistake. I used matrix metering whereas I should probably have used center or spot. I had to soup the 100% crop to get any respectable detail. I sharpened and used noise reduction, and here's what I got:

D3200; Nikkor 70-200 VRII at 185mm; 1/1000 at f/5.6.
