I would stop using the remote (wireless or not), keep your shutter speed up to around 1/1000 sec or so (adjust the ISO if necessary), leave a little slack in your bullhead, press down slightly on the lens a few inches beyond the tripod ring and keep your right hand around the camera grip. Unless you shoot with the mirror up, using a remote doesn't work well with longer lenses and having the mirror up doesn't work well with bird photography. Pressing down on the lens and holding the camera will dampen out vibration, and you should get good results.
