Baytown Bald Eagle

Not the best shot of the Baytown Eagle(s) I've seen, but it's the best one I've taken so far. From last weekend, this shot is of one of the pair on the nest @ 167 yards. It's about a 50% crop taken with my 50-500 lens and a 1.4 teleconverter in available light.

Hand held or tripod? What shutter speed? Focus is a little soft so I'm wondering if it is the lens or some other factor.

1/250th at F8.9, 708mm, ISO 320 looking at metadata. It's 1 stop underexposed, probably to keep the sky from blowing out. In this case it would be better to let it blow out and bring up the exposure on the eagle.
