When I click for the large version, the same 600pix image comes up on screen, and it would have been nice to see the 1000pix version.
That said, the focus on the eye is good, showing lots of detail, and the whiskers/hairs under the beak look crisp also.
There seems to be some over-exposure on the top of the beak, which is a common problem, although this can be solved by under-exposing the shot, then using an adjustment layer in ps, and then erasing the area in the layer on the beak, and also the plumage on the neck which is also exposed to bright light.
Compositionally, I personally prefer to see a bit more space to the left of the beak, for the eagle to look into, as too tight a crop can make the subject look too constrained.
I will set about doing a mod to address the issues I've mentioed, and I hope this critique is of some value to you.
