Welcome to TN community. Your 1st post entry has received very favorable feedback and your 2nd post here although a bit soft in sharpness, is also a good capture of the red cardinal showing nice color in the winter background. The contrast perhaps may look good with a bit of tweaking. But I find you have shot this very nicely in framing using your well-prepared zoom lens at f/7.1 aperture. Looks like your bird shots are well done and easy for you.
Very beautiful capture of this Northern Cardinal; great pose and composition, bright natural colours, excellent pale and blurred BG. Unfortunately the bird is slightly soft. Did you sharpen it in post process and/or did you shoot through the window? I made a WORKSHOP and tried to fix that, hope you don't mind.
I think the workshop on this cardinal helped it in a side-by-side comparison.
