I suspect you are simply too far away.   Long distance bird photography on a small bird with good results could mean 20 to 30 feet (depends on the size of the birds).  With bigger birds it might be a bit further.  That is a lot more than with other cameras but the further the distance the less detail you will get whether it is a camera, your eyes or binoculars.  The camera will give good record shots at distance but the only way I know to get semi good shots at great distance is by digiscoping (using a basic P & S camera through a scope).  I suspect Kenn's photos are a lot closer than you realise.
