Thanks! This bird business is tricky -- I discovered I have the ability to get motion blur at 1/2000th handheld. Definitely need more practice!

Depends on the bird. With a kingfisher blasting off or a Sparrow, you won't stop the wing movement even at 1/4000. You will get close, but not quite. A larger bird like the Stilt, Spoonbill, Heron, etc is not an issue and you can stop the wings at around 1/1600 - 1/2000. I generally lock the shutter speed on 1/3200 at ISO 200.

Anyway, it sure is fun trying and nice shot.
