C&C as requested - IMHO, good placement of bird in the frame, some whites are blown, e.g. top of head, slight blur on head, with feet being a bit sharper - ?focus or ?motion blur, background is fussy and distracting - could you blur it more? I agree the light is harsh, but that's part of opportunistic wildlife photography!

I agree with Richard Miguel. You should be able to sharpen a bit more and that will give the photo some pop. I like the light through the wings, this looks like late morning early afternoon and this is a tough time to expose whites.

Yes the light is harsh and the shot overall is over exposed but that is all part of the learning curve. The comp and pose are super.

Thanks for the suggestions. I tried bringing back the clipped highlights, but there just wasn't much there. The shot was overexposed by a bit and I lost the highlights. Here is the original shot. I had to add some area to the bottom of the image (hope that wasn't noticeable in the end product). I cleaned up the background a bit too with a new blank layer and a brush in Photoshop. Any suggestions as to what you would do differently. Feel free to play around with this before image.
