i use these guys in the winter (now if only i could get that 1200mm lens, i wouldn't need to crop so much...)

Nice shot, Snir.
However, in order to practice, the shooting opportunities need to be plentiful.
How many of those owl flights can a typical shooter see per week/month ?;)

He,he....those are focused right and framed pretty good....you just have to practice your exposure a bit...and then all will fall into place.
The 70-200 can get very good results if you can get close enough to them birds. It's all in the fast response and steady tracking....the 70-200 can allow you to practice that.
Now, 300L (any) is a much better BIF lens, however, for those gulls you would not really need it.
Remember, proximity beats FL most of the time.
