The Eurasian Sparrow hawk is shot from 5 meters, 100 iso and 65 mm (in my garden). I did only a crop from landscape to portrait.
The Common Kingfisher is shot from 13 meters, 80 iso and 1200 mm. The height was 2.2x more. So from the 12Mp, 2.5Mp is left?

Wow, to most all the shots that folks are getting.  Since I'm relatively new hear, maybe such things as I'm going to say have already been addressed.

I like birds and enjoy seeing these shots and I'm now also photographing them with my new Canon gear.  Seeing the shot is great but I personally would really like a little background on the shot (how, when, where, maybe) and what it was shot with and even settings if feasible, so that I can learn something.  Or, in case I'm posting then someone else can benefit.  Of course for me to post and include such information is more work and I might feel lazy about it but I'm thinking we should all make an effort in this regard.  No??

Here's my 6D, 300 2.8 II and 1.4X on my new treepod aimed where the poor hardworking sapsuckers come every 10 minutes to add a little syrup to the bug for their young.  I'm just now trying to get into the 6D WiFi for remote shooting - any good resource material anyone know of?

You are absolutely right on. It helps to know this stuff to learn. It just takes a little more effort and time to post this data. Here is some info from my last 8 photos taken yesterday. All were with my 7D, 70-200mm 2.8L ISii taken from my yard next to a drainage ditch/small canal a little after 5 PM. Sun was behind me. The ditch has tilapia fish and attracts a few water birds (ducks, moorhens, night herons). Now, since I have been feeding them with bread at suppertime, they wait for me for a free handout. ;D

Here's the exif on the shots (all were standard style and AWB):
1)f/7.1, 1/320, ISO 250, @200mm, one shot
2)f/6.3, 1/1600, ISO 250, @140mm AI Servo high speed continuous
3)f/4.5, 1/800, ISO 400, @200mm, AI Servo HS
4)f/7.1, 1/200, ISO 400, @200mm, one shot

5)f/7.1, 1/250, ISO 200 @200mm, one shot
6)f/7.1, 1/200, ISO 320, @140mm, one shot
7)f/6.3, 1/1600, ISO400, @130mm, AI Servo HS
8)f/6.3, 1/1600, ISO250, @ 145mm, AI Servo HS

Cheers 8)
