You did very well with this, nice detail in the eye. My only critique is to add a little more space above the bird.

This is very good. A strong composition with the bird slightly to the left of the frame and looking/walking into the additional space you have left to the right. Detail excellent and sharp where it needs to be.

Not sure what your maximum aperture could be however it looks like from the exif data you could have opened up a touch more. It wouldn't have made much difference but would have just softened the background a little further and helped emphasise the subject more.

That said this is a great shot. Well executed and very appealing.
