Composition:

Where the subject is placed within the frame can make or break a photo. Often the photo is much more interesting
if the subject is placed off center. By composing with the bird slightly higher or lower in the frame, a more interesting
composition is created. A common problem faced by many photographers is distracting backgrounds,
such as crisscrossing sticks, or branches that seem to come out of the top of the subject’s head. One way to control
the background is to vary the depth of field used in the exposure.

Proper positioning to eliminate background clutter is essential. to avoid competing with the subject for the viewer’s attention.
The tripod should be carefully positioned both horizontally and vertically in order to eliminate clutter and/or bright highlights.
This way a pleasant green background can be created which makes the subject "pops out".
