My neighbor went out of town and asked me to take care of his bird. Never knew parrots had eye lashes

This works well, though I'd crop to a slightly squarer format, I think.

You've showed that an RP works at 12,800 ISO, which is good.

But you are pushing it with the low light levels - 342mm and 1/160 second? You had luck and a following wind to avoid subject movement and camera shake. IS can reduce the latter, but doesn't affect the former.

Its a decent shot with nice detail.

I think a cloudy WB may have resulted in saturation being a bit too warm, and the eyelashes area can be sharpened a little more to show them off.

I addressed these areas, as well as increasing exposure a little in the mod, and a closer crop that has the head in the middle, as dudler has cropped with the eye on a third. Ive reduced background noise which became more visible as the exposure was increased.

Nice image. OK, some minor adjustments as above and a tighter crop to increase impact, but good stuff.
