Hello, ok here are my thoughts in no order but I hope they help.

First off it looks like there is a colour cast, it has a green tinge. This is probably a white balance problem. setting the camera to cloudy may have helped.

I created a mod image to try and help. First I used the remove colour cast tool and sampled off the white bit of the bird. Then I adjusted the saturation and reduced the green channel.

After that I looked at the levels and brought the black level to the right a bit to increase contrast. I think this makes the image look a bit better.

Composition wish it would be nice to get closer but that is difficult. It would be good to put the bird a bit bigger in the frame.

I hope this helps John

There can only be one crit - the bird needs to be very much larger. I know how difficult this is and, in a way, what a stupid comment I have made - but that is how I see it.

I assume you have a compact with one of these huge fixed zooms - 24X? Were you at 24X - you needed to be, then you would also probably need some kind of support to avoid a shaky image.
