Probably pushing the capability of your camera/lens in this shot. You really need to be closer to the bird to show more detail. The eyes and head of the bird are barely discernible. Shot also lacks sharpness, it may be slightly out of focus, or the result of camera movement/shake. Compositionally the bird is in the centre of the frame, and would be better balanced if it were placed on a third (Rule of Thirds).

Just one example, an portrait crop. Divide the image equally into 3 parts vertically and horizontally, by drawing 2 imaginary lines (vertical and horizontal). The Bird is sitting roughly on the intersection of the bottom horizontal, and rightmost vertical. Google rule of thirds for a better explanation.

Thank you all for your comments. I thought having this bird on the branch and showing foliage would be good. I could of course have cropped it completely, but then that would not have been my intention

Both the landscape view and showing foliage would be OK, except in this shot you really cannot see any real detail of the bird. Look at CSurry portfolio to see some excellent examples of bird shots.
