Did I mess up - Pruned too early

last year

I did a 1st pass on winter pruning about 3 weeks ago. It's been a mild winter but the leaves finally dropped on them.

These things at 6 feet high or so and me thinking, let me just take about 2 feet off so that winter winds, any snow that can break them complete, let me shorten them a bit.

Anyhow, noticed all the ones I cut - showing dieback.

Normal due to time of year and the fact that I made a cut ?

And or no, don't do any pruning from November-March (depending on ones climate )
