Created a layer copy, played with "levels" on bottom layer for the head, top layer for the rest of the image, and combined the two by erasing the parts of the top layer over the head with a soft brush to allow the bottom layer to show through. Flattened image, made another copy and high pass filtered that to sharpen it. Selected beak/head area and added a touch of USM sharpening to only the selected areas. Flattened Image. Finally cloned out the white speckles, cut off the frame and added simple key-line and border.

Hope you don't mind!
