There should be software with your operating system that will allow a rough calibration. If you use Photoshop, that too has a calibration option.

I downloaded your images; to my eye, the Cardinal is totally washed out. But the detail is there. Also needs some green and blue. The Dove, while NOT washed out, needs more blue. I couldn't do much with the Cardinal other than making it darker, but the Dove just needed some blue to shift the color.

The shots are actually not bad at all! Good work! A shame not to be able to "see" them.
