Amazing close up, Luciano.
Strong gaze, fine details, balanced exposure.
Beautiful portrait of this Hawk if we talk on its color, DOF and plumage details. Excellent light on its eye. But BG is distracting and taking concentration to cherish the beauty of this Bird. I like the way, you kept its eye just over Middle horizontal (if we imagine) line. But composition isn't great, and could be better in vertical framing where you could easily put its eye following "ROT".
Although, it's my personal view. Just simple ignore it if you don't agree/like.
Thanks for sharing with informative NOTE,

Beautiful portrait of this hawk in great sharpness and details. Yes this is a Red-tailed Hawk. A pity that the beak is a bit bluish through the sunlight.

Your image has outstanding definition, and is tac sharp. I love how you made his eye the focal point and how you can see a reflection in the eye. A wonderful head shot of this Red-tailed Hawk.

A wonderful close-up image of this beautiful Red-tailed Hawk. This is an immature bird which can be identified at close range by it's yellowish iris. The detail is superb, I especially like it's eye and the catchlight which is visible. Overall an awesome image. Well done!!
I have a shot of an older bird which I took years ago if you care to view it.

Very nice portrait of a wonderful bird of prey specie. Amazing details and perfect focus as usual. From close range this portrait has an amazing accuracy.....In the eye of the bird I can see even the reflections of the trees around......Thanks for sharing.
