I would have used A mode and set cam to F4 as you don't need much
DOF as the hawk is the only subject. F4 should be sharper than F8.
Then I would have used EV adjustment to compensate gor bright
sky...maybe -3 or -6. Very hard photos to take.

Took this this morning on our Town Lagoon.

The hawk was hanging around for quite a while and out of the 8
shots I took of it, this one was supposed to be the pick, until I
got home and viewed it on my monitor.

I've been wondering for quite a while why some of my shots come out
muddy looking, maybe someone can help here hopefully.

The only explanation I can think of is the tropical heat where I
live plus I always have the camera in my hands that adds to the
heat (no neck strap).

Specs for the shot are - 717 - ISO 100 - f8 - 1/640s - Oly B300 -
Manual W/B using Expo Disc - Focal Length 48.5mm - Pattern Metering

No editing except for cropping has been done.
