    I like the first shot of the bird. All my shots of my bird are of her beak coming towards the lens...

    Looks like you may have used an on-camera flash on the bird. Gives it some harsh shadows/highlights and is likely the cause of the extreme dropoff in light from his head to further back. I'd recommend getting an external flash that you can redirect of the ceiling or something...

    Other than that... well... the framing and subject could use a bit of attention. They're fine quick shots but don't have a ton of interest, really. Sorry. Not trying to be mean, just trying to help.
