Here’s a tip. When framing, don’t cut off the tail. It makes the bird look amputated. Awesome shot though! Headshots are different, though. If it’s just a headshot, it’s fine. But if the whole bird is there except for one thing, it’s annoying. 
 

 

Super nice lighting and sharpness, however!

For example, this one you have up is a lot better in terms of framing it, IMO

I agree with you. But at 400 it wasn’t possible to get the full bird in the frame. Too close.

It looks to me like the tail was cut off by being on the other side of the feeder platform, not from cropping.

Ummm, at 400mm you could have reduced the zoom to 300mm, or less, couldn't you? 😉 I know, I know, I tend to forget that my zoom lens has a short end too. 🤣

Yes, but this whole interaction took place in seconds.

I think we all know that type of situation all too well. Sometimes we have to take what we get, which in this case is still a nice photo. 👍

You’re absolutely right though. I tend to shoot at 400 almost all the time, often forgetting or ignoring that there are shorter options.
