Hello RDA....
I think the shot is a bit soft and I think there is to much background...All that
green is distracting...Your focus is the bird and the beautiful colors...
I did a quicky fix...Hope you don't mind...

Thanks John it looks good. What did you use to change it with? (software) I used Canon's 30D software that came with the camera .Just started taking pics about 2-3 weeks ago.Will post more.

RD......
I use Photoshop 7 for fancy editing and Photoshop Elements for quickies...
If you really want to get into editing, which I am sure you will, I recommend
PS Elements...About 60 or 70 dollars...Pretty easy to learn and there are lots of books out there to help you...

I think I would have liked to see the whole Parrot in the picture.

With as much camera and lens you have to shoot with it would be better to see the whole bird. What is posted looks sharp and colorful but just doesn't hold my interest.

You don't necessarily have to get the whole bird in order to get an interesting shot but usually doing one or the other works out better. You can still get interesting shots of 1/4, 1/2 etc.. if framed in the shot correctly. I took several of this Macaws and the close up won out over the full body shots.
