Do you count Swans as 'birds' :) when it comes to 'bird photography'

I'm not really one for bird photography in general - but I can't resist a bit of swan action.

Yellow-headed blackbird this spring with a stick in its beak, presumably nesting material.

I decided to get into bird photography last April... these a few of what I think are my best shots.
Any constructive criticism would be great.

They're all great! You have good, smooth, backgrounds in general. DOF enough for the bird. Punchy colours without overdoing it.
The last one, which looks like an Eurasian Reed Warbler I shot a 2-3 years ago, could possibly be a little tighter.
