Well since you asked for CC, I'll bite. I would keep the light at your back, not the birds and I would have left more room around the bird and not clipped of body parts.... Composition is also key, leave room out front of the subject matter/direction it is looking or moving and look into the "rule of thirds" :-)

I think you did very well considering the conditions... but like Mike said, Proper lighting is key.

HA HA . You are 100% right. The image is more like an non-wildlife image. If you look at the exif it was only a prime lens 200mm (DA200mmF2.8 ) of Pentax firing at F4.5 and very high shutter speed. I had my 300mm with me also. But knowing that I could sneak in real close to the GBH, I took out this. Obviously back lighting and distance were difficult to control with a shortish prime lens.
One afterthought besides reframing I have is to use F2.8 to blur out the distracting background. Well no clue if I have next time though

Your subject and bokeh is impressive and something to die for.
