rpt, thanks. I used a 60D and EF 100-400mm, Aperture priority f/8.0, 400mm, 1/500s, ISO auto 200. I still only shoot in Jpeg, a little embarassing, but I'm a beginner and too lazy to deal with RAW.Thanks. While I was shooting with my 300D, I only shot JPEG. Since I got the 5D3, I switched to RAW. I can tell you it is a big difference in the edit. Try it. If you are skeptical, shoot RAW+JPEG. I am sure you will like the flexibility. Oh, and get Adobe LR 4.2 if you don't already have it. The second shot is great too. How far we're you from the bird?
Here's another one, heavily cropped, same settings except ISO 320.
