Removed some blue and worked on purple fringing which I hope improved the photo.Added a title which had been forgotten in original post.
Thanks for the kind comments and suggestions

Don't forget to give your picture a nice title :)

First, it is not easy to capture a bird in the sky. I like the feathers details in the shadows. Personally, I would even more open up the shadows, and remove the bluish colour. Reduce the noise by lowering the ISO, or post processing. You may use a surface blur with appropriate mask for that same matter. Also, maybe add a little more sky to balance the image (rule of third).

The fast speed and 300mm worked for you. Good capture. Maybe just a little more white on the bird's body would be nice but not near the edges as it stands out so well now against the sky?

Really strong capture. You need to come up with a different title..what you have now detracts from the impact of your image. No title would be better than what you have.

There is noticeable fringing--esp on the upper/rear part of the wing. Getting rid of that blue fringe would help.

I'm not sure if it would help the image if you removed the blue color-cast on the bird. But it might be fun to experiment in post-processing, to see which version looks better to your eye.

Believe the title of the song is 'rock and a hard place' but 'between a rock and a hard place' is a line is a line from the song
