AF locking on to bird feeders

Just practising with my new R5 with bird feeders against a backdrop of trees and branches. I found it hard to lock on to the feeders and birds and it picked up the messy branches instead. Not sure what I am doing wrong. My 5D4 would have managed.....perhaps with a little hunting, but this was a real nuisance.

What settings should I use? Generally i use one point AF in the middle (old school). It was on single shot.

TIA
