Great clarity in the pic. I would clone out the twig on the left side of the image near the birds tail. I also think the image is slightly overcropped. I would show more of the perch the bird is on and see if that gives a better balance to the image.

It is a nice shot but there is a lot more you could get from it with some PP.

I like the last one too. I still dont like the twig on the left by the tail, but I dont know how easy it would be to clone out.
