Just gorgeous shots again Ed. Agree with Glen on the 2nd - superb. Bit of haloing on the first though.

Since I have both those pieces of glass I'd better start putting them to work - unfortunately I don't have your skill level though

What f stop where you using in #2 as so much of the bird is in focus (I usually use f8 for BIF but I'm not sure I'd get that much in focus) ?

I love the 2nd image Ed, I miss the big birds up here just an occasional GBH.
