That's a good composition, what lens are you using? Except of the noise I don't see anything to change.
Very good series Pam and nice poses in all three. The colours look very natural and I like the tight cropping. However there are some noise in the pictures - could come from over-sizing. The noise in this case is easy to remove in Neat Image so I dare to make a WS to show you - hope it is OK. You can find some usable links about noise reduction and Neat Image on my intro-site. I will give the 2 point for the effort.

The background is a bit noisy on the large version, which you could fix with NeatImage - its free.
Apart from that it's a nice composition of a common species. Its well framed and you can see all the features needed to identify it.

Very nice Pam.
There are some noise , what ISO did you use.
I own a 10d and I use up ISO 400 without noise.
I think Mogens is right , maybe over-sizing.
Anyway nice post.

Hi Pam, for me to give advice you should post some more info in your note. The info is called Exif or metadata and the camera usually writes it in the photo. If you select properties in most photoviewers or editors you will see it. The facts I really need are the following; the lens you use, did you use a flash and/or tri-pod, time of day, weather conditions and focal lenght. When we have this info we can make an informed recommendation.
If you have any problems extracting the info drop me a mail I will help you with it.
It's a great camera, the qulity of the shots should be very good.
Anyway... it's a nice set of shots and testing like you do will pay off handsomely. Stick to it.

Pam, nice composition(s).
The bird is one of the most common around the world, but it is no problem at all showing them.
I myself have been trying a good sparrow shot for quite a long time, but, so far, I wasn't successful.
As for your photo, I also like the greenish bg in them.
