I do not see a focusing problem but as Dave said, there is no detail because of the severe crop means very few pixels are left to convey detail. Small birds against blue skies are some of the hardest objects that are popularly photographed. To do it well, those who specialize in birds invest in serious lenses so that the subject fills more of the sensor.
What does the focus look like when shooting a subject that fills most of the screen? I suspect it is very good. Get closer, stop the aperture a bit to reduce the softness of that model lens at 200mm and crop less and you will be a lot happier with the images.
Your other camera would have captured a lot less detail if cropped as much because of its lower resolution .
