your feathery friend is so cute, sue! :-)
great shot with wonderful details and a terrific pose,
the focus seems a little bit soft on a few spots though,
which are maybe from the 1/60 at 300mm, these are not easy to manage without tripod.
i like to use an exposure time which
is close to the focal length, so with 300 mm at least 1/250
or 1/320. tips for bird shots? nice sunny weather? *g*
you already used ISO400, i would not like to use 800 or 1600
due to the noise. sorry, no good idea at the moment.
good job & take care, thorsten.

Cute shot with a nice composition, colours and details
The easy way to get sharper pictures at the speed is to get an image stabilised lens, now thats not always easy, the same as getting a good tripod setup. If i am not mistaken the 350D you can set the X-sync speed 1/200 sec. That may be an idea just to see what results you may get from those settings, you should beable to access it from the custom settings menu. Also you could bump the ISO up to 800, as the 350 should give you limited noise and a useable picture. Anyway i hope this helps :)
As for the picture its well composed and a little soft, however considering the size of the subject and your shutter speed you did a very good job capturing this Robin.
