How distracting is the branch in the foreground? And any comments about the cropping?
I can only give you my very unprofessional opinion I find the branch distracting and I go to the bird on the right.
The subject matter ( who doesn't love baby owls !) make the distraction a bit more tolerable. If I had the skills I would clone out the branch. I like the tight crop.
