Hello, John. I don't see any signs of rain, but that's not important. A closer shot of the bird would obviously have been preferable and avoidance of the out-of-focus leaves at the top would improve the image. The background is competing for attention with your bird. I personally like it very much, perhaps as an abstract, but not as a background for your bird. It gets a little lost. Also, you have placed it central in the frame and it would be better to have it more to the right, with room in front and less room behind. I have done a modification where I cropped, adjusted levels, and selectively darkened and sharpened just the bird. My second modification has the background desaturated a bit in order to tone down the bright colours there.

A good try, but you have suffered a little from subject movement, and VR can do nothing about that. The roof is sharp, the bird, likely shaking itself in the rain, is a little off.

Ideally, the bird a bit larger, but, despite my comment, quite pleasant.
