A nice shot, nice BG...the only small thing that bothers me (slightly) is the bright spot on R/S

Excellent focus and depth of field. Only thing is it feels ever-so-slightly washed out.

thats pretty, i know how hard it is to photograph birds.

Nice close up. Good detailing on the bird's feathers. What if you adjusted curves? I think it might enrich the overall tones and really give it some extra POP. 7
