WIP, Recommendations Appreciated

I would greatly appreciate recommendations for what to add to the background of this piece, and to what extent of detail. Don’t worry, I plan on adding more details to the branch. Also any other tips are welcome. Thank you!

Here’s the reference

A good start but the darks will make it pop.

Agree with Doug. The darks will finish it. Also when you are working in those dark details notice that the sharp details (focus of the camera) is on the bird and the branch directly under it. The details on the branch- as the branch moves up and back and forward to the right- fade in sharpness.

Good advice. I wouldn't touch the background.
