Suresh, Great looking bird.  Too bad the branch goes through the tail.  It might be my monitor, but it looks like you brought down the highlights on the branch left of the bird and there appears to be remnants left?

Shooting into branches is not easy, but you captured this Bluebird beautifully, Suresh. A great pose with excellent eye contact.

Very pretty bluebird-lovely eeye contact. Yeah...those branches a bit frustrating to deal with.
