Here's a grey catbird that (if you pixel-peep) is surrounded by food. Too bad I couldn't catch it snatching one of those flies out of the air  :-\ (7D, ISO400, 500mm, F/4, 1/800s)

Next is a sunbathing northern mocking bird that didn't mind a giant shiny object walk up to it and make odd clicking noises  :D (7D, ISO400, 500mm, F/4.5, 1/640s)

Very nice Moobark.  Seems I'm in a lull right now, maybe it's the 26-30 degree fall weather we've been having but there just isn't too much to shoot!??

But here's one from a few weeks back.  6D X300 2000th F7.1  ISO 1250

We had that heat wave too two weeks back. It's cold now and we're seeing a lot of migrants.
RE: your humming bird. Sometimes whenever I browse this thread it feels like I don't do my 500 II justice. Nicely done!

It's fun to be a part of this thread with the varied and high quality shots that keep showing up from different folk.  I'm already starting to get panic attacks knowing that my bird count is about to nose dive.  There'll be nuthatches, chickadees, magpies and a few others like pine grosbeaks and Bohemian waxwings but nothing like summer!

Not to mention that the temperatures won't be kind.  :)

Why not migrate with the birdies ;)

If you plan to fly south (east) you are very welcome in Pune, India :)

I am waiting for The November thru March period when a number of birds get to near (within 100 km radius) where I live.

Ah yes!  I'm going to start flapping tonight, maybe in my sleep.  Seriously, if finances hold up I'm really hoping to have the odd holiday.  Which brings me to another point.  If I go to Peru, which will probably include other SA destinations, I feel I must take my 300 2.8 lens, but having been to SA a couple times I can imagine I'd have to have it chained to my arm 24 hours a day and what would I carry it in when not shooting, and how does one deal with the airlines etc.?  I'm tempted to think the 6D and 24-70 would be it but then I'd be kicking myself everytime some wildlife showed up, knowing me :(

Any brief thoughts anyone on shooting birds far from home?

Had my 300 X2 on my friends 70D tonight but the sun was setting and it just wasn't working out.  We did shoot the moon and I sure like the prospects of 20+ MP crop and the extra reach (7D2 where are you?).  I will be doing a more serious evaluation probably Sunday and hopefully will have some bird shots to post.
