Maybe you won't consider it a compliment, but they look like EOS 20D + 400mm tele shots.
With the last one you posted these are the best bird shot I have ever seen from any FZ.

No Teleconverter can beat a hide which allows you to shoot from a few meters and even using flash.

the only lack is the yellow cast (esp. in the first three) common to all the FZ except for the 30.
Easy to remove with photoshop (Auto color or a bit of Auto color, or Colorwasher plugin, or manual color balance...)

thanks Francesco,

your bird looks much better!
I should use a neutral gray card. My aim is to reduce pp to a minimum.

Very sharp images. The second one is very impressive.
