Beautiful image Craig. Lovely framing and composition. Brightness looks ok on my monitor. After all, it looks like a late day shot and the large view does show it well.
Make your life spectacular!

Craig, When first looking at the image, my thought is that perch and bird are a tad dark. The background looks good to me.

Great find and look-back pose. I agree that it could go a tad brighter, maybe by raising the midtones.

Yes it looks like late light but the content and composition is lovely and when clicked on the beautiful detail in the thrush is plain to see!

Great image, Craig - the thrush family can be challenging to photograph I've found. A photo at dusk will appear naturally darker than one at brighter conditions, so you have captured the scene as it was. An easy fix with post-processing, if desired.
