This is a very nice picture, looks like a studio shot, really nice quality and details.
You should have included the equipment, and shot parameters so we can have a better idea of how you take this kind of pics.
If pray birds are on your wish list, maybe the sigma focus might be slow for you but again cant compare to the canon.

You did a beautiful capture of this falcon. Details are fantastic and so DOF and POV. Your blurred BG makes your bird stand out nicely. Great quality shot. TFS!

it's a good portrait af the falcon maybe a bit tight at the top but with very good details and POV.
The shallow DOF is good too, the bird standout nicely from the OOF BG.
Very well done.
a belated Welcome to TN.

Lovely close up of the magnificent Saker Falcon. The clarity is excellent you can clearly see all the feather detail. The composition is very nice and the DoF just right to show the bird very sharply but throw the background well OOF.
hope your not in to much pain from the opp!

A belated welcome to TN. Great shot you have here, beautiful detail and great colours. Nicely framed, superb DOF with no fall-off on the Falcon and nicely defocused BG. Just a little OE on the whites on the body but a minor nit. Great shot!
