Looks good now alady. As for the blurring in some areas of the bird, it probably was the
wind as you mentioned. I see the same thing on dim windy days when you
really can't get the shutter speed up to where you would like it.

No it doesn't. If that was the case the whole bird would be blurred. What speed did you shoot at?

From time to time a bird will use the mucles along it's skin to "Ruff" the feathers. they have total control of this and can ruff parts, or all...

You can see (cause their such good shots:-)) that some of the feathers are standing "OUT" meaning they're being ruffled...

Don't mind my sense of humor Alady. If I was twenty years younger, lived in Australia and had a lot of money I would be hitting on you...:lol:

I like your photography. And this has me puzzled. When a camera shakes, you get a complete blur, or at least it would like like an out of focus shot, or some such variation.

I have a picture, and I'll try to dig it up, that I took at 640, where a Ducks head is "rotating' That's what the image shows, just a motion blur as if I had used one of Photoshops special effects. The rest of the duck is crystal clear.

What actually happened is that he twisted his head from side to side, so fast that it actually looks like a rotation...

So my reaction to your images is "ruffled feathers."

But 1600 is a pretty fast speed, so I am confused...
