This is a very good portrait of a beautiful bird. IMHO, the only thing that is a bit distracting here are the flowers in front of it. I feel that the flowers take the attention away from the bird which is quite unfortunate. You 'squeezed' the focus well past the flowers and present the bird with excellent detail and sharpness. The lighting, and catch light in the eye is very good as well. Will we see more of this bird ? I hope so!

This is a very brilliant bird. Too bad about the flowers though because they detract from what would otherwise be an almost perfect shot - still, an excellent attempt. I also like your notes and if you capture more of these, I'd love more info on them. :)

Good focus with nice detail, color, & eye contact..
And you managed the light from the side/above well, it adds some depth.
