Gosh! What happened? Where all the hair go? Is it genes or they are just your regular soccer fanatics?

On a serious note:
It's such a mess in the frame, they look like "not-so-bold chicken".
Tech wise - image lacks focus and, in this case, so much needed separation fro background. Bin it.

I'm afraid Osh is right.

The birds all sort of blend into the background. It could have been a great encounter to capture if you had longer glass. But as is it's kind of hard to tell what's happening.

Invariably, there is always great action that is just a little further away than whatever glass you're shooting with will reach. :rolleyes:

While I can agree with the two previous critiques, I can't agree with the comment of "Bin it". As I have yet to see this behaviour/action live and be able to even attempt to capture it... if this were mine, the only way it goes in the bin is once I have replaced it with a better shot. It might not win any awards but I'm sure I'm not the only one who has hung onto less than perfect photos as they were the only evidence of a sight or memory....

If the original has enough resolution, crop it down to just the two eagles in the center. Otherwise, the picture hasn't any particular point of interest.
