I like how the bird stands out because of what you did with the color, but I can't see enough detail of the bird. It looks like it's a really beautiful bird, but it's out of focus. I'm not a super photographer myself, and I know it must be difficult borderline IMPOSSIBLE to focus in on a bird that's flying that fast.. but, it would've made the shot 10 times better.

It takes a great camera and super setup skills to capture this type of shot clearly...I know I can't do it.
I like what you have done with it though. I wish I could get the hang of desaturating only part of an image (how?)
Great composition and creativity here!
