Birds! I got birds! At last! - RX10M4

The setup - RX10M4 on a tripod, stabilization off, intervalometer firing every 5 seconds. The EXIF data describes the camera settings. The change in exposures speaks to how inconsistent lighting was. I was shooting through a heavy drizzle to light rain between 12:18 and 15:33 (noon to after three) or early-mid afternoon. There were a total of 1,881 frames. About 175 were useful. About 175 frames were totally unexpected to capture a bird at my bird feeder.

Manual focusing, using the seed as a test of sharpness. All images' brightness and contrast have been tweaked. Had I thought I'd capture some birds, I'd have stopped down to f5.6 for a little more DoF.

ADDED: I was shooting through a double pane "thermal" window.

Lead me not into temptation. I know a shortcut.
