Hello Kashyap,
You have found my weakness, I have had a love for pigeons since a young boy when I watched my cousins flock fly around the neighborhood. This is a lovely bird with the typical colors of a Rock Pigeon. I love it's red eye and feet as they immediately captured my attention. The fact that you captured it with nesting material in it's beak is an added bonus.
Luciano is right about the composition, as the wing tips are cut off. The focus is just a tad soft due to it's movement, which I'm sure you already knew.
On TN if possible we try to photograph our nature shots with as little or no man made objects showing. You are still quite new to the site and have posted two interesting and beautiful subjects so far. I hope to see more from you in the future.

Camera settings for an action shot are appropriate, but I also agree with Luciano and Ron, Kashyap.
