There are three birds in this picture: one European greenfinch and two blue tits (although we see only half of one).
The picture has been shot in jpeg, post-processed with darktable and severely cropped.

Nice try and I'm sure it's nice to watch the birds.
You indicate it has already been post processed, have you considered shooting in RAW? An image like this with a difficult lighting situation will be much easier to post process with less loss of quality.

I don't find the overall photo very appealing. Because of the highlights, the feeder station is drawing most of the attention, instead of the birds.
The overall image also seems underexposed and composition wise I'm having a hard time finding a clear point of interest.

A good photo of birds - it really is hard to get them to cooperate and line themselves up.
