Good start. It is a tricky art and needs lots of practice. I have managed some decent shots, including a couple of a seagull using a manual focus lens that I am quite pleased with (but can't access at the moment).

Keep practicing. Try with tracking autofocus and slower birds to begin with. Yes, keep the shutter speed up and remember the bird will often be underexposed against a relatively bright sky, so experiment with your exposure settings and using a bit of exposure compensation. You may as well use a fast, continuous shutter to give you a series (variables such as the wing position of it's flapping can make a big difference). Oh, and keep practicing.

Thanks for the tips New Day Rising, I know only practicing makes you...;)
