I don't have the 70-200 but I do have the 7d and from reading others posts, I believe for fast moving subjects, you should be using AI Servo to track the subject while in motion. Also use center focus instead of all 19 AF Points. The camera will focus slow also for a lack of contrast and obviously low light situations.

Tried that ChefAlex.....  Using center point on a bird flying by is like trap shooting..... Thank you!!!
