FOr me I'm afraid this doesn't really work. The branches cutting across the head and body are too distracting. I think I can see what you why trying to achieve, framing the head but overall it becomes too cluttered. It is neither a picture of the bird (crested grebe?) or of the branches. either could make an interesting picture but my eye doesn't know what it is supposed to be looking at.

Merlin k ,
this shot is illustrating how these marvelous birds think about protecting their nest from vandals by being inaccessible.

A very good try..
We don't always get it they way we want but have to use the best of what we get...
It is taken well the twigs do distract..
You have been able to get the shot as well..
Good on you, and keep trying and you well get there in the end...
