People tend to push up the shoulder on the opposite side of the weight-bearing leg. It's a structural thing that you couldn't really change anymore, so I leave this as an advice for the next piece. This is, to me, largely the problem with this piece.

If the bird holds up the cage with its left arm, the weight would normally fall on the right leg. You have it the other way round, this causes the unnatural looking pose.

Other then that, I think I really like this. Good job :y:

Great piece. Great thread. Every one of us has their big-muscle-guy-or-other thing to get beyond: thanks BOB.

I'm longing for something in that cage. Lil' birdie is the obvious idea, what else?

Is perspective of cage and figure jivin' ok? We're looking slightly down at the figure, yet looking upward at the cage. Scrutinize it; see what you think. Weird shadow bugs me.

I was going to point this out.  It's dynamic, but not necessarily in a way I enjoy...
A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.
