I'm curious as to whether you have to use photoshop for this  and in that case, how it is done (layering multiple images?) and/or if there is some panning or shutter speed method used to get this effect.

If you're curious, chiccadee, you might try asking the photographer. It doesn't look like anyone here, myself included, wants to speculate on how much of the photo was made in the camera and how much was made on the computer. I'll only go as far as suggesting that a shutter speed that fast won't allow for much panning and it's the f/2.8 aperture and/or photoshop creating the out of focus blur.

It's photoshopped. I'm pretty certain there isn't any photographic technique that could possibly create that. The bird is pasted onto the background and the reflection of the bird is photoshop as well.

Yup. The background looks like a vertical pan of reeds, and the bird is lit differently than the background
