First of all a very interesting moment again.
Secondly the focus is very good. I think that short shutter speed was necessary in this situation.
About the exposure issue you mentioned in your note:
I'm convinced it's very difficult to get the right exposure here. The contrast between the birds and the sky is just too high. And whether you overexpose or measure through spotmetering instead of evaluative metering, etc.. I believe the enhancement will be limited.
An editor isn't the solution as well..
That said..I'm quite astonished about the quality as you can see details anywhere in the birds...
So, well done...

Not used to this kind of birds. Good shot of this bird in a unsusual position. Are they fighting or mating?

You have shown well these interesting birds. Your photo has a sharp image as you have very well focused on the birds. Even if there might be some problems with the exposure the colors of the bird are well rendered.
Thank you for sharing,

Wat een schitterende Afrikaanse naam weer. Klinkt veel beter an het Nederlands: Zwarthalsbaardvogel. Wel jammer dat het rood in de kop niet zo goed tot zijn recht komt. Want het zijn echt juweeltjes in kleur. Wel een prachtige actiefoto in uitstekende scherpte.
