good use of - EC to stop whites from 'blowing' - although of course if using spot metering you have to be aware that if taking a measurement from the white areas then the camera will already be calculating what it believes to be the correct shutter speed for that area and as such -EC could under-expose. personally i find it better to use one method or the other.

also, consider whether the horizontal line above the subject is a distraction or not - it's your image so only your opinion truly matters

Good details in the feathers and eye and the water line in the pool does not worry me
well captured

I liked this even before i knew it was taken through glass, which i think makes it an even better shot.

A very handsome bird, unfortunately I have failed miserably in capturing this seaside beauty.
