Someone once explained to me the 4 steps of wildlife photography.
1. It's not a great picture but I saw it and here is proof.
2. Here is a nice portrait.
3. The wild life acting in its environment.
4. A creative treatment of the wildlife.
I think this picture of a common sparrow falls into category 4. I hope you enjoy it.
