Tony, thanks for the kind words. The camera made these relatively easy. I've always done pretty well on big birds like the geese with the K20 and K7, but never with this level of sharpness. I always shoot in Av mode and I had my aperture at f/8.0, with an ISO of 1000. With that combo and bright sun, I had a shutter speed of 1/2000 using the Bigma.
