Not Loving 200-500, better pics from P950

Hello all, recently got a Nikon 200-500 lens, and I'm not loving the pictures I am getting. I dont know if its me, the camera limitations, or the lens, so any help would be appreciated

This was a picture I was happy with, taking with D7500 and 70-300 VR AF-P 4.5-5.6

Looking to add more reach, I purchased the longer lens, and this is a typical picture from the 200-500 on same D7500

Faster Shutter Speed:

Nothing really special about these images, and when zoomed in, I don't get the fine feather detail.

In comparison this is from my P950, which I think looks better then the 200-500....

One of my hobbies is BIF, thats why I upgraded from the P950 to the DSLR, to get better action shots. I'm just a little disappointed right now.

Any advice?

I was debating the 300 PF before i got the 200-500
