He's an amazing looking bird. I think a tighter crop with more emphasis on the bird would help here. There are a few too many branches which are distracting.

that is one awesome bird - and a really good photo of it as well - the focus on the eye and beak is right on the money - i just wonder if a slightly different crop to avoid it being so centered could have even made this a bit better - it might be possible to crop out/ clone out a few of the small branches to further highlight this cool colored bird
