Song Sparrow at Oceanside

Here's a photo of a Song Sparrow on the cement wall at the San Luis Rey River Mouth in Oceanside. I was able to place the camera right on the wall for a low angle photo right down the length of the wall. My 100-400mm camera lens shoots best at f7.1. Fully extended to 400mm gives my camera about 12x magnification and only a very few inches of depth of field as can be seen by how quickly the cement wall goes out of focus in front and behind the bird.
