got one in the hand, now what?

I noticed the birds were more worried about food than me so I put some seed in my hand and sure enough got one to land. Next I got my camera and focused on my hand and waited. The 30D is heavier with one hand and the focusing is a little more difficult as the blurred bird proves. The lens noise startled him which I guess is the reason why bird photographers favor the long lens.
