Robin, second attempt

Robin, second attempt by cathsnap

A good shot but as said its a little soft, that could be from shooting at the max aperture on the lens as most are sharper around F8, 1/400th second with VR engaged should be enough to eliminate camera shake, at least it is for my shakey hands on my set up, so I wouldn't think it was that.

I always focus on the eyes then quickly recompose the shot depending on where the bird is looking, in this case I would have placed it to the left a little so you can see more of the area its looking towards.

Another thing I have found helpful is getting old branches and twigs, then placing them in the places where the birds tend to land or sit.
In this case you could probably jam a small branch in the top of the metal fitting, this gives a much more natural looking shot.

Peek by filter99

A bit of sharpening in the eyes is the only thing I think could make it better.
