I cant understand this comment,I personally feel it is one of my best shots and as much as I look I can not see any out of focus points on the head of the bird.no one else has mentioned it.another quote is.
Perfectly exposed and quality pin-sharp focusing.
so I think now I will not believe all critics...,just in my view !.
I have taken some excellent advise some good and some not but this
I believe had no basis or standing and if i am right will show up the flaws in the critic more than the photographer.sorry to all for this out burst,not normally this touchy

To be honest the head looked out of focus to me too until I looked LARGE. Cant explain this effect myself but wonder how many people judge a photo from the smaller image and get it wrong? personally i rarely go large because of the time.
Nice shot though.
