I dunno....I think that's a pretty darn good shot of the twig! Could have been centered in the frame a little better, maybe.

Lol.  The two of us should have a juried exhibit.  See my recent post.

What species is it? 

What!  You can't tell!  I let that out on purpose just to see if anyone would guess!  It's the back of the head of a female great gray owl!!  She's sitting in a nest box!

My guesses were going to be Barred, spotted, or Great Gray, but I wanted to make sure 😂 🤪
Awesome bird!

This might have been a good shot if only... the bird feeder wasn't in the way...the shutter speed was a little faster...the sun was a few hours lower in the sky so the shepherds hook wasn't casting a shadow on the bird's head....

Warbler + autofocus. 🙄

Inability to get the AF to focus on the bird and not on the branches is my biggest annoyance with bird photography (my current camera has no manual focus option).  The only remedy I have is to AF on something the camera will allow that is about the same distance away as the bird, hold the picture button down halfway then point at the bird for the pic.  Another big AF annoyance is when the bird is almost in focus and the AF decides to go as far as possible in the other direction before coming back. Why?
