I am very impressed with your pix. Those male (tell by the moustache, female doesn't have them) Pileated Woodpeckers are exceptionally clear.

Turkeys are great too, Tremendous detail. Wacky Roger uses the same 50-500 Sigma Zoom and I'm starting to think these might be right at the top-quality wise-considering the pictures, as well as your 300-800 Sigma .
