Nice shot Josh although I do feel the branch above it makes the shot a bit claustrophobic.

Good portrait but I agree with alex, that bird is having a bad hair day.

Nice to see a bald eagle but this bird looks sickly to me. Not your shot .......just noticing it's demeanor and the fungus looking stuff around the eyes.

I agree the bird looks not well at all. If is is captive someone might need to have a closer look. The branch above takes away a bit.

I couldn't help this sad looking "hen pecked" bird, but decided to see what I could do with the background. The animated GIF loses some color fidelity, but gives you an idea of what can be done with Photoshop ... mostly cloning ... which means replacing one chunk of the picture with another.
