    Welcome, Nasir Khan.

    1. The bird is sitting on the tree's branch.
    2. The bird is sitting on a tree branch.
    3. The bird is sitting on a branch in the tree.

    4. The bird is sitting in the tree's foliage.
    5. The bird is sitting in the foliage of the tree.
    6. The bird is sitting in the tree.

    Does that help?
