Hello Michael,
What a gorgeous bird you have presented today. Very streamlined features, I'm guessing it flies very fast and maneuvers just as well. I like the contrasting turquoise, brown and blue colors in it's plumage. Wonderful eye contact with just a bit of catchlight. Love the blue sky as a BG, something we don't see much of here in northeast Ohio.
A tad more space in front of it's beak may have made for a nicer composition, but this is just my opinion.
