Hi Sergey,

you nailed the focus but it is a pity that it just moved its head in behind the out-of-focus twig. I would try to selectively increase th contrast of the front of the head and the beak. Maybe that can save it.
Another thing to consider in this situation (sunlit bird against shaded vegetation) is to under expose one stop. That would have saved the highlights on its under coverts and its bottom.

I see that you do keep em coming - so I don't have to say that ;-)!

Cheers, Jens!
