DC-FZ80 Looking for advice on best settings for zoom bird photos

I've had the DC-FZ80 camera for a few months and am still not quite sure what I am doing wrong when it comes to getting clear photos of birds that are pretty far away.   I used the P setting.  These are the settings that show on the photo:- F5.9 ISO 500 AFC AWB  Is this as good as it will get for this kind of shot?  I also took a bunch with the A setting that turned out almost the same as this one but a little blurrier.  What setting are best for this kind of shot?  And is it possible to get a clear shot holding the camera in my hand while using the zoom?  Thanks!
