I think it's great. Just clone out the patch on it's bill and smear in the background.

The bit on his beak doesn't bother me at all, probably some plant material he picked up while feeding. On the other hand, I see it as out of focus, and clean up your sensor. If the stuff in the background isn't sensor dust, I would still get rid of it in PP. Speaking of which, did you PP the image at all? I think it could very much benefit from post processing. I've had my tries at hummers lately, it's not easy. They're very fast. This one was sitting I presume. What lens did you use? What was the overall setup? If you have opportunities like this, you have a great potential for some wonderful shots.

It's a great shot - a little soft or as Penatxpixie mentions my be a tad OOF. If you have access to an area for this kind of closeup - lucky you !

As others have mentioned, it is a bit oof but you must have the potential for getting some great shots. Looking forward to seeing your next shots.
