Why is this not sharper?

I finally bit the bullet and ordered a used Olympus 40-150 Pro. Unfortunately it may be too heavy for me when attached to my EM1.2, but I have attached a UV lens filter

to protect it and have a few more days to think about it. It actually feels more comfortable to hold on my EM10.3 but that's not the camera I would prefer to use it on.

Anyway, I sat outside this morning and took several photos of birds in the yard. They all came out similar to the attached JPEG. This is uncropped, straight out of the camera. Should it be sharper? Is it camera shake, lack of good focus, settings, all of the above?

Thanks for any help.
