    Jim: Question. What kind of bear is best?
    Dwight: That's a ridiculous question.
    Jim: False. Black bear.
    Dwight: That's debatable. There are basically two schools of thought-
    Jim: Fact. Bears eat beets. Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.
    Dwight: Bears don't... What is going on? What are you doing?!

    I sharpened and bumped up the clarity a little bit using a brush, highlighting only the moon since the sky was pitch black

    Avoid using clarity, at least not without masks, because it increases noise a lot.
    For sharpening use the "High Pass" sharpening method a few times ( duplicate layer, desaturate, apply high pass filter, set layer mode to overlay, adjust opacity, merge layers, repeat steps to increase the effect )

    Need moar ( faster ) shutter speed.
    Turn VC off.
    Make sure to keep your shutter speed at least 1/effective focal length, which is 1/480s ( focal length @ lens 300mm = 480mm due to 1.6x crop sensor ).
    1/480s speed would ensure ( unless you have parkinson's ) that you won't have camera shake caused blur ( shaky hands ).
    Then, you'll also need to make your shutter speed good enough to freeze the motion of the birds, that depends on the bird and their flying speed, etc.
    Usually 1/640s is good enough to freeze big birds.

    I'm aware of that, I was on full manual and was not expecting them to take off. The two were perched with their wings spread on top of a nearby roof, which is how I was planning to shoot them. That was a lucky/unlucky accident, they'd been perched long enough for me to see them, watch them for a minute, go in and find my camera, get change lenses and get my exposure correct. As chance would have it, the second I have my camera pointed at them they decide to take off. The only reason I did anything with that picture is I really like the framing with the wings pointing into opposing corners. Had I expected them to take off I would have gone for 1/1000 at a higher ISO. Ah well, such is life
