Hi Gary I find the male cardinal hard to get good detail from due to the red and it's easy to over sharpen and I would guess from what looks like his shadow the sun is right overhead making the right side a bit darker. All in all if you could get rid of the halo it would be a good photo. I bet if you used a fill flash it would have been perfect.
