I'm not a "seasoned" photographer like many here but have been practicing in order to try and improve. Any suggestions on things I can do to improve are appreciated. These pics. were don with a 60D using a 70-300 L lens in AV mode. Thank You.

It would be nice to get some light in their eyes - maybe a flash dialed down so it is not overpowering, or a reflector.

Agreed with the above, also the gray background makes the entire image look flat and dull so position yourself for a better background (this may or may not be possible depending on your location but just for future reference).

I think too much of the focus is on the feeder thing. I'd try to nail the birds with the focus or use a smaller aperture to get more of the scene sharp. with your combo, I'm thinking you can really get the detail and texture of the birds feathers and eyes to pop.

but like was mentioned before...I can see how that might be a bit tough due to the available lighting.
