I think you've done well to get good feather detail and a nice catchlight in the eye with such an underexposed shot. I think you're right about the ruby throat. There'll be no ruby there unless you fake it but there shouldn't be in this lighting situation. If this were mine, I might try reducing the red luminosity/saturation a bit to subdue the feeder. I don't know whether that will work or not. I might also crop some off the top.

Pretty impressive clean detail for such a dramatic luminosity adjustment. A few years ago, this would have been unlikely in just about any commercially available digital camera. Definitely exhibits the advantage of shooting raw.
