They are perfect and beautiful. Really they are portraits.
How did you get such a wide DOF?
Do you mind sharing your set up? Flash? Backdrop?
In the first shot, the bird is most parallel to the back of the camera. So that helps with DOF.
I just shot from the car. Camera/lens was held up on the edge of the car door window.
No flash used, just natural 8am light
Background is the grass just below the perches, since I was angled down slightly. The distance between the camera and perch was less than the distance between the perch and the grass.
