Ellie,

That looks excellent.

Looking at it full size, it seems that you've focused on the bird's abdomen (in the center of the uncropped photo) - and I suspect the little focus square was there rather than on the bird's head. Am I correct?

If so, I'm not sure what's best practice for forcing the square to the desired spot (eyes/head) with RX10. Perhaps someone will offer advice.

Hmm.  I think I might have focused first on the eyes then moved down to get the entire bird in focus. Or something like that.  One issue that was odd, The view finder would change from light to dark as I was looking through it.  Wasn’t sure what that meant.  
Going back to see if they are still there.  They must have a nest somewhere nearby because I see them flying in the area often.  First time I have seen them perched at Publix in many months.  They used to be there often.
