Great portrait in beautiful golden light. The eye and detail, along with the intense stare, are nice.

Joe nailed it. The portrait and warm light are wonderful, David.

Pretty bird, well photographed.  I would try making the background a little lighter.  That might make the Hawk stand out more by better differentiating the color between the background and bird?
