For more stationary subjects -- like the fox or a perched bird -- try zoom AF by assigning it to a button. You can really nail focus by increasing the zoom by 7X to 14X.

The best in flight bird shots are usually with the bird at or slightly below the camera. Shooting up usually doesn't produce very interesting shots, and shooting the backside of any critter usually doesn't produce anything very appealing.

FWIW, lots of people have birds around but very few find foxes!

Finally, not sure if you're shooting RAW, but to me your color balance is slightly off. The colors seem exceptionally cool. Easy to change.

Anyway, have fun!
