Wonderful detail in the exposure. Could you provide a few details about equipment and distance please. I have recently taken some pictures of Bald Eagles from about 100 to 130 feet with a 430mm lens. Yours looks much closer. I see they like to hide behind little twigs up in Washington too.
With all of the nice dark greens and browns in your background you did a nice job of exposing the dark feathers. Great detail.

Here are the camera settings for that particular shot. The lens is a Tamron 28-300 zoom. I was about 75 ft from the bird. The camera was on a tripod, with a remote shutter release. The sky was heavy overcast with poor light. What I posted has been cropped. Thank you for your nice comments.
