Too many objects in the picture (and the title) a portrait orientation crop may have worked better.

Poor bird... seems like very cold :( Nice phot :) Ilike the way it looks like "Shhhhht.. don't make noise, I am watching birds" :)

Neat shot, it looks really cold there. To me the out-of-focus elements seem to dominate. You might try isolating your main subject a bit more and focusing more closely on it.

The foreground ruins this shot for me - depth of field is all wrong IMO

For me this shot is a little too busy, at first you're not sure what you're supposed to look at IMHO. I think the limbs towards the top take attention away from the bird.

yup, yup, and yup. check those off your list. i think this is nice except for the out-of-focus branches in the foreground.

I think this has a lot of potential, but I find the OOF branches in front a bit distracting.

The ice on the trees is nice.

If it wasn't for the title I wouldn't have noticed the pigeon. This picture is far too cluttered.
