D850 focusing Question

For bird photography I usually use AF-S Single point A/F (Focus Priority) for slow moving/stationary subjects and AF-C 25 Zone (Release Priority) for Birds in flight.

On my last outing I chose to stay in AF-C mode the majority of the time and used it on non- moving subjects with awful results. Everything is blurry. I was shooting birds in a tree with the 200- 500 zoom, on a tripod with a wireless shutter release. I had VR turned "off". My only thought is being in " Release Priority " vs "Focus Priority" caused the problem. Any thoughts? I was usually at f11-f16 @ 1/250-1/500 sec Shutter speed on a tripod as previously stated.
