Return to focus madness - RX10M4

Empty feeder

Am I being unreasonable and whinging, or is this feeder not quite in focus?

The setup is simple, camera on stable tripod, open window, feeder ~15 yards away. I used the phone app to trip the shutter (no shaky hands).

I selected manual focusing with peaking enabled. The peaking outline is in red (easier to see here), and I've got as much red showing as possible.

I dropped the EV because the lighting was making the feeder look washed out.

Oh yeah, all the usual birds saw me coming and have skipped town. One downy showed up while I was fumbling with the phone. Of course there was no hope of shooting that bird. Since then, gone like they're in witness relocation. Grr...
