Norm, I was pretty close to the Nut Hatch, and this is the most detail I got shooting with my FZ20. Any suggestions on how to get more detail?

First 300mm f2.8 is the best lens which canon makes so it is tough to compare with that. But I think the detail in your shot is also lost coz the picture is resized for smaller size. How does the original looks on your PC? It should have better detail. Maybe post some small 100% crop.

Mullen, these are the best photos I've seen from you yet, and they certainly don't need much more sharpening. Your frames are a nice match and don't detract attention away from the photo.

In order to sharpen your nuthatch a touch more try some selective sharpening. Use your selection tool to select some of the rougher feather areas and apply USM as you would pepper to a stew, just enough to season and not so much as to spoil the meal.

EDIT - Alady, if youare notup on creating your own frames simply do a google search for frame templates and you'll probably find a ton. Just copy and paste theminto your paint program and resize them to fit your photo using a layer (you may not even need to do a layer).
