    I personally choose the blue or green area to focus. I feel the red area always sent the focus system out of control .....

    for face on shots of people or animals, its good to focus on the eyes... unless there is some other area you are trying to highlight... the eyes naturally draw the viewers attention so if it is blur, then it is abit weird looking... not to say that 100% have to be on the eyes, but usually if you can't think of any reason not to, its the default choice...

    Hmm.. thanks for all the feedback.. i was reading a photography mag sometime back. Some expert advises beside the eyes, try to go for the darker area like blue or green. What u guys think of this theory.

    I actually tried it out during a bird park trip... results are pretty good @ my surprise.

    Only if you a smaller aperture.. try that with a large aperture and see what you'd end up with.

    When the eye(s) is/are sharp, then it's easier for you to make eye contact.. The picture got more life.

    You should focus on the eyes... It is similar for maco photography too.. aim the insects on the eye

    From your pic... the parrot's eye is pretty sharp
