Looks very good. Difficult to fully assess sharpness at this size but looks OK. Would crop the background a bit - I find the yellow area, extreme right, a bit distracting.

Welcome to EPZ. She is making a nice job of the nest, Cyril. You have good detail, colour and exposure, but the background lets the image down a bit, and I think it could be a bit sharper. I have done a modification where I cropped square, eliminating a lot of the background on the right. I reduced the highlights, cloned out a bit of debris under the bird's chin, adjusted levels slightly, selectively sharpened the beak and eye, sharpened the overall focus to bring more detail on the feathers, then softened the background because there was a bit of noise there.

This shot was processed in Raw and is and was cropped in PS I am not up to speed with the rest of the comments in the adjustments. I also have difficulty with judging the amount of sharpness to use I do appreciate the critique
