Nice shots guys!

Anyone have any idea why sometimes notification stops on a thread??

Just saw two Canada geese overhead - spring is coming, they never make mistakes.

Tomorrow I purchase a beat up 1D2 that is supposed to work well for $250.  Anyone used this and have any idea what to look for?  I'm willing to gamble that small an amount but better to check whatever I can first.  I'm hoping it'll give me a feel for a possible 1DX purchase (size, weight) and complement my 6D for faster shots until I make up my mind since I'm still wondering about a 7D2.  Any thoughts?

Something new for me, a Yellow-eyed Junco.  These little birds are found only at higher elevations in southern Arizona and in Mexico.  I spotted this one at 8,000 feet on Mt. Lemmon near Tucson.  Canon 5Diii, 400DO, ISO 800, aperture preferred, f5.6 @ 1/500.

Steven, the detail on that bird is awesome ... perfectly sharp, not too much, not too less, just perfect.
