Can someone explain this picture?

This is a fairly average shot of a flying bird which is noisy as hell (yes, it gets hundreds of fawning flickr comments). So noisy at only ISO 400 I'm wondering whether you 20Ders feel this is normal noise for a 400 ISO shot.

This is important for me because I am considering the move from Olympus E-510 to the Canon 20D and better ISO performance was one of the reasons why.

But...

Please do feel free to post your 20D high ISO shots...surely they don't look like that.

(with apologies to the photographer of the linked pic...your other work looks rather good)
