Great image, just a little too centered for me but that's just me.

Right on JJ. Crop out most of west of the beak and north of the head. If the image was reversed, the eye would naturally be drawn from the base of the twig to the bird.

Better to crop off only a little on the left and more off the twig, moving the bird to the right to get your thirds - you have to leave space in front of the head in the direction the bird is looking.

The rule of thirds will improve the photo quite a biy. As for the Focus and exposure, you Nailed them jazz! Congrats!
