Here are a couple of pictures of a Tucan that I photographed in a Zoo called, "Temaiken" (Located in Buenos Aires, Argentina). It was taken with a Canon Xti and the Canon 55-250mm IS lens + polarizer filter. Any feedback would be appreciated :)

The second one makes me laugh!!!
Nice shots...the yellow on the beak seems a little blown, or it's just translucent or something.

DANG IT...I want Fruit Loops now...ARGH!!!!!!

These are nice. The first one on the first one near the back of the bird it goes completely black without detail. This is a toughie because of the bright light and bg, with an absolutely black bird.
2 is great, I wish he was on the end of the branch...
Nice job

Too dark shadows and over saturated. The tag on hid leg should be cloned out

It seems like the focus was off, it is sharp on the branch, but not on the eye?

Colorful bird. Watch your focus points. In both photos, your camera chose the branch as the focus, which was probably not your intention. The bird is back lit in one shot. It would be to your advantage to move to a position where the sun was behind you.

Thanks for all the comments!LOL on the Froot Loops comment... I feel like eating some too! :) I think my camera did focus more so on the branch instead of the Tucan, especially in the 2nd picture.. I didn't use any photoshop, this is actually how the photos came out directly from the camera in JPG.

Missing some sharpness on the actual subject, but fun!

Comp - wise the 2nd could have been a real winner. I don't think it is lack of sharpness as it is OOF (the branch in front through off the focus)
Almost as bad as OOF is the OOC blacks - they are way way off.

my guess would be Out of Camera (ooc)

i think i might have to agree with over saturation.

Underexposed...especia​lly the first one. I would prefer less DoF to make the background less distracting.
