Hello Jackie,
Welcome to TN!
You make a fine start with this close portrait of a Tawney Frogmouth taken from a fine POV to show good details and a great eye contact and the diagonal composition is very good.
Just a few tips about this site:
Try to write a note that not only describes your subject, e.g. name of species, where found etc, but also the circumstances around the photography. Here you could say how you came so close!
Secondly TN is a site of give and take. People soon get wise if you only take critique without giving it.
Well done and I look forward to seeing more shots from you!

Hello Jackie
Welcome to TrekNature, and what an unusual bird you have posted for us.
And what unusual feathers and patterns he has on his face.
Good focus on his eye, you show him well.
I agree with the tips that Ivan has said to you too.
Thank you for sharing

Hi Jackie,
A warm welcome to TN.
A great first start. Very good focus on the eye and great details in the feathers.
There are not many frogmouths on this site and those that are here are in a theme 'Frogmouths'. I have added your photo to it (if you don't mind).
TFS (thanks for sharing)
