Nice sharp shot with good dof - it suffers from the glaring sunshine - but there's almost nothing you can do about that. Very good IMHO

Hi Focus_Man, unfortunately a small seated and cordoned off area for spectators that you had to stay in meaning you had to shoot in one direction, not sure why on this image its so dark in the background, on other shots that day there is a fair amount of green or purplish brown from trees to it. Agree about the wingtip, using a prime and too close i guess for the birds approximate 6 foot wingspan.

Thanks to all for the feedback

Very impressive. Don't mind the wing clipped, and thus, clip the other and a bit of tail, thus pulling the birds head toward the right of the frame, not the left.

I don't believe you always have to show everything, and a tighter crop would really give frame filling impact.
