    Maybe add some background info or thoughts, otherwise the best you can hope for is maybe "is good birb".
    I tried really hard, the best I can come up with is, maybe define shadows a bit more / add some more directed light.

    Too much black! Try to never ever use pure black in your pieces, instead go for a very dark color but it will make the image nicer overall and give it a more vibrant feeling. Nice piece tho, like the brush strokes a lot.

    I like it, although some of the brushwork looks a little mechanical. You may want to draw some attention to the eye and beak through carefully added details.
