Thank you so much!  First, I got a new monitor so that I can rework it under calibrated conditions (over-sharpened imo).

That said, I used 5D# 1/400 f 4.5 iso 250
Lens 70-200 (at 2000 mm) f2,b is II with is on. Flash did not fire.
In Lightroom 4 it is cropped 968 X12310.I believe it was shot manual.

Regarding the crop issue, I personally have found that it is best to get as close as possible to fill the sensor so less cropping is needed, and less particulates in the air to degrade image.  Here, I zoomed in to the max with my 200, and had to crop very little.

Thanks again.

Alan great kingfisher!

Mind saying what lens you used and whether you cropped at all.

My experience with the 7d is that any images above 320 iso or so just do not allow any cropping, unlike 5diii  raws, which allow cropping to about 100  % without any need for noise reduction.  For me it is usually better to use the 5diii and crop vs getting the extra reach from the 7d.  I think there may be variability in the sensors in the 7 d

Plus lots of stuff that just didn't work for me

A Male Red-winged Blackbird perched in a barren tree adjacent to a wildlife pond.  They have the most incredible bird calls.  Noisy at times, but most diverse especially when in a cluster.

I ran my Bird App and pulled up the Acorn Woodpecker.  I placed a few calls and about 5 entered the scene.  However, this is a very strange shot as this thin branch won't leave much room for a hole to plant his food.  He was either elated with the calls or wanted to leave room at the previous branch as a "gentleman like" courtesy.

I was thrilled to be able to capture this shot..a White-tailed Kite.  Not a common bird to start with and his haunting eyes against the white feathers make this raptor somewhat eerie.

Enjoy
