Hi Carter,
The only thing preventing this from being an outstanding photo is camera shake. You either need to use a tripod or a much higher shutter speed. The composition, framing, and lighting are great.

Carter,

As Cal indicated th blur can be addressed viaa either a tripod or fastre shutter speed. Just out of curiosity, were you using digital zoom?

Aloha

Carter...as others have said, this would have been a great shot except for the shake.

If you don't have a tripod, try this technique. Try not to follow the bird with the camera(called panning), but try to anticipate where the bird will go. Hold the camera to your face and bring your elbows to your sides, holding them there firmly. Sometimes this can reduce the amount of shake.

I would love to see the result, so go out and try it again.
