Its always a challenge to catch these small ones. From the size of the leaves, one can easily estimate how small the bird is. It seems this is a big crop. You can still extract some more details on the bird in the shadow area.

For such a small bird you need to have a high shutter speed atleast in the region of 1/2000 to freeze the movement. Considering that its back is towards you, a wider lens opening smaller f stop like f5.6 would not have given you sufficient depth of field.

You can post an image with a max of 800 pixels in the longest side. For images that are not frame filling, it is better to post at 800 on the longest side. That would also help in critiquing. Look forward to more.
