Whilst it's well seen and the birds are pleasingly arranged, I'm afraid the out of focus stuff is a bit of a distraction, and the birds are not well lit. If they were both in sunlight, their plumage would be less dull. Also, it isn't that sharp.
IMHO, I think cropping to place the birds nearer the left side and losing the branch bottom right would help, and a little selective brightening on the birds should improve the look of the picture.
The good thing is that there are lots of birds, and practice is easy to get!

Just tried a mod, but the program on my computer here is very limited!

I'm guessing that this is a crop from something much larger and that the camera's lens was at full stretch? Apart from the softness, there's some CA in there as well.
Those Sony lenses are really pretty good but they're really not long enough to capture shots like this.
Sorry if that all sounds a bit negative.

We have no details to go on. Lighting on the birds is not ideal, but the main problem is the lack of critical sharpness. For such images, the birds must be very sharp, especially the one nearest the camera.
