This is an image from a tiny backyard in Melbourne. I set myself the challenge to see if I could get birds in a really "ugly" and small space that didn;t look like bird photography at all. It worked in the end! I show the whole process of this setup in my latest Youtube video. 

The short summary: I put out water and some apples for a while and had eventually a few of these guys come in, set up a few flowers, background and got this guy checking them out :)

Interesting set-up, looks like corn stocks....bird looks nice, I wish the tail was separated from the vegetation...
