Jrista,
Great images and informative discussion. I have learned a lot. Very confusing to noobs. I remember someone on CR frequently talking about better resolution being related to " number of pixels on target." So with reach limited subjects, you need either higher focal length lens or more (ie smaller) pixels per area on the sensor, to get better detail resolution. Did I say that correctly?

Fantastic photos in this thread. I'm still trying to learn BIF technique. Most of mine are blurs or blue sky. Some recent ones that I kept. 7D, 100-400.

Really nice shots everyone. It's been awhile so I'll add a few of my recent ones. Most are with 7D and 100-400.

Thank you for your kind words. I live on Oahu, Hawaii. These "cardinals" are much more prevalent here than the usual Eastern cardinal.

Here is what Wikipedia says about them:
The red-crested cardinal (Paroaria coronata) is a bird species in the tanager family (Thraupidae). It was formerly placed in the Emberizidae, and notwithstanding its common name, it is not very closely related to the true cardinals (family Cardinalidae).
It is found in northern Argentina, Bolivia, southern Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry shrubland and heavily degraded former forest. Among other regions, it is found in southern part of the Pantanal.
It has also been introduced to Hawaii and Puerto Rico. In Brazil, it has been introduced to various places outside its historical range, as in the Tietê Ecological Park in São Paulo, alongside its very similar-looking close relative, the red-cowled cardinal (P. dominicana).[2] :)
