I'm not seeing much if any bokeh in these images but more background blur.

This also goes to show that theres much more to an image than background blur/bokeh. Choice of backdrop is much more important.

Most of the images I've seen in this thread so far are nice, but they really haven't dealt with any of the more serious situations for bokeh.  A bird that is isolated against a background that is 10x as far from the camera as the bird is not pushing the bokeh.  Pushing the bokeh is when you have a bunch of branches crossing each other only twice as far away as the bird; that's when bokeh can get really ugly, and even the best telephotos are poor at this, IMO.
