Very nice. If you really want criticism - the framing is a little too tight, not enough space around the subject. No context - where is the bird, is that a river in the background, I can't tell - either frame the bird and the river or just the bird. maybe a little more saturation in the middle... I'm just being very picky, you asked for it. I can tell that you used warp stabilizer didn't you :)
Also what commercial value does this clip have?

As a *general* rule for wildlife & kids, it's better to get down to the "head height" of your subject than to shoot from above.

My opinion:

- Good sharp focus on bird
- Not much commercial value
- Too common clip, difficult to make sales
- Boring composition
- Too Flat lighting
- It's better to shot with tripod and not try to stabilize after so you don't get this artificial handheld movement
- Too much zoom over the bird, better leave some air in the margins
- I recommend to describe the bird also with the scientific name

Only my opinion, the video is correct but not too suitable as stock footage.

:)

Yes.  The usual "standing at eye level" makes it less interesting.

I would have made use of the cars in the background to create a contrast between leisure feeding and frantic cars.

I found my eyes constantly drawn to the flickering in the left hand top corner

Bery nice and sharp indeed. I think you are moving the frame to much...

Where do you see cars?

Anyway, I agree with the others.

Regarding "commercial value" - you never know. It won't reach the top list and sell hundreds of times no, but common shots of birds do sell (just sold a baby swan clip yesterday). If it's a common bird however it needs to be technically flawless. If it's a rare one or a rare situation - technique won't matter too much.
