Hi Adam, some good detail here, however, having looked at some images in your PF I notice you tend to place your subject more or less central in the frame. That's fine if your subject is looking straight ahead but in cases like this you need to have less space on the left and more on the right so that the bird has room to look into, this would improve your composition somewhat. My comment is intended to help rather than criticize
I am always impressed by any photographer who managed to get a shot like this. By the time I've got my camera to my eye, the bird has flown.
However, I don't think that's the way the professionals take photographs like this. I think they point their cameras in the direction of a suitable background and wait for the bird to pose in front of that background. The advantage of this method is that they can choose the background. (The disadvantage is, of course, that you could wait from now until Christmas for the bird.)
In this photograph, the background, while dark and blurred, still detracts from the main subject.
Mind you, having said that, for a snapshot, I think you have made the best of this photo opportunity.
PS: I think FeatherFriend's advice is good advice.
i think its more involved than just 'waiting for them to pose' in a predetermined place peter. firstly feeding stations are set up to attract the birds to the area regularly.then a suitable clean bg is identified and an attractive perch positioned near to the feeder, they also have to get used to a hide, and theres theres hours of patience in the freezing cold. lesley
