    Honestly I think your PP is fine. You're tweaking of the colours and exposure along with the crop have definitely made the subject stand out more. I'd probably be inclined to use a dark vignetting than a white one to suit this image better but that's a personal thing.

    About the only comment I would make is that perhaps turn up the exposure on your bird by 1/3 with the adjustment brush when you're comfortable using it. There's some great online tutorials at Adobe TV that you might find really helpful in getting to know Lightroom.

    I have to agree with Malcolm's comments especially the exposure on the bird. The second bird in the isn't in the best of spots but still a great start!

    I think you are doing well having just started PP.The last edit is close.I think if you bring the exposure up just a touch and do a slight contrast adjustment and add some sharpening you will see another improvement.
    Very nice photo.
