only thing I can think of is there was a promo code involved or perhaps you clicked a link from a non buydig.com page and it brought you to their site with a referral tracker/cookie

Thanks for the advice, I am in no way a serious birder! I don't think the color is off on my image, though. You kind of remind me of that birding movie with Steve Martin, that was insane haha! I don't think I've ever been that obsessed with any of my hobbies before, and I got too obsessed with one or two of them in the past.
Great car, impressive that it got in a music video too! I'm in Tennessee. Here's one of my heron shots. The colors aren't that far off I don't think. This was just with a 50D and 135 f/2 + 2.0x TC ii, about 3 years ago.
I have tried a 500mm but find it a bit short, even the 600 needs to be close to minimum focus distance if you like to fill the frame with smaller birds. Where I go birding the 500 F4 is probably the most sought after lens, probably due to it's lighter weight and price though those that have tried my 800 hate me! Especially when they learn what it cost.
My 800 is normally on a Gitzo/Wimberley setup though it is OK on a mono pod and can be handheld (for short periods) if necessary. If hand holding then keepers start from a shutter speed of 1/125th or faster - it has 4 stop IS. Some say it is too big and too specialized - I disagree, I even store my camera on this lens as it is by far the lens I use most!
Btw, does your name refer to a '67 muscle car or something?You are perceptive. To clarify, the moniker comes from an 80s psychobilly band called the Revillos (aka Rezillos) a track called "Revup" and indeed I had a 1967 GTO for 24 years (ragtop) and the car is featured in an MTV video with Samantha Fox called "Naughty Girls Need Love Too" (youtube) or go here for images: http://www.flickr.com/photos/51683260@N05/4849678607/#in/photolist-8oxSup-8oxSwD and http://www.flickr.com/photos/revup67/4849678737/#in/photolist-8oxSup-8oxSwD/
