Also you could try manually selecting the point of focus .I often do that rather than relying on the auto setting .That way you can zoom in and keep the one focus red square on the part of bird you want sharp ideally the eyes .I set centre point mainly.
Try it and show us the results.
Hi Matte thanks for your sugestions although my friend forseti told me I should centre focus manually and keep the red square on his eye, or the contrast between the red and grey on his breast. But the pictures were still not as sharp as they have been, since I manually focusted on a point I know the bird would land with the auto focus turned off.
I think thats a bit of a dissapointment me getting sharper pictures by manual focus rather than auto focus.
I will try to take two pictures today one using manual and one auto focus with the same settings and see what you think.
I will post the link on this thread
Ps hope the liitle devil turns up for his meal worms
