I like the composition but if you don't mind me saying (and this is a problem I have and a comment I have had made to me several times) your focus should be on the eye as the bird is rather soft due to a shallow dof and your focus on the tree in the foreground (I know this only to well as it is something I have not quite mastered myself yet.

Great effort this, I am not sure what camera or lens you are using, however if you are able to do the following, IMHO this will assist in this type of shot.
You can keep the DOF as this looks ok, however you need to turn the auto focus to manual and focus in by hand.
Change the multi-segment to spot and as Huddersfieldhil says get the spot on the eye for sharpness.

BG is good, the FG twig and leaves will not completely go due to the closeness to the subject, however the above advice will make the bird pop from the image.
I hope you find this helpful.
Regards
Burnsie

The camera, from looking at earlier shots, may be a Panasonic G2. This has touch screen focusing, so touching the birds eye would focus on the eye. Its also has a single point focus option. manual as mentioned is also an option.

Just want to note that multi-segment, and spot refer only to metering, not focus, and Im sure that whats meant is multiple focus points and single focus point.

Apologies for confusing the metering with the focus points, the content of my advice was related to the focus point of the image and reference to multi/spot were with this in mind.
