Hi Aram!Nice try! The composition of the first, is the better of the two, but the detail in the bird is somewhere below non-existent. The details in the second shot are better .. .it would have been nice if he'd swing his head just a wee bit towards you, so as to get a wee bit more light on his eye. A wee bit longer lens might have been nice, too.
A good effort, but you're going to have to keep at it, if you want to knock Doug off his perch!
