Himadri, Excellent image with excellent timing. Could see adding a little saturation to the bird?

This image taken in early morning light. I tried to add  more saturation but it makes yellow casting on the bird.

Wow, terrific photo of a great bird.

Not sure why anyone wants more saturation; the colors appear accurate to me. But I could see moving the blackpoint to make the dark parts darker.
