Basically OK. Needs a bit of cropping etc - I've uploaded a modification.

I think the AF has picked up on some of the foreground grass here, rather than the bird - which is odd to say the least.

It's definitely not pin sharp on the bird, but some grass is

often good to use the centre spot AF on portrits and animals so you can control which spot is used

I agree with Ade, however, bird photograhy needs a little more application than this shot shows.

All good bird portraits need to be at eye level with the subject, which makes this little more than a record shot.
Moving slowly it is often possible to get either yourself or your camera down to the level of the bird, then concentrate on getting the eye as the sharpest point of the image.
