To shoot these small birds in flight is really something I´m struggling with. The time it takes from their head appears from the trunk hole and till they are out of sight is enough for 3 frames on the 1DX at full speed. I have tried to tweak the AF system to track them, unsuccessfully. If anyone have done anything that works, any advice will be appreciated.

Here are two more examples, where I managed to get them fairly sharp. I also managed to get very close today, so I dod not need the extenders.

Thanks candyman,
No, he is actually removing carved wood from his home to be in the trunk, so it is the exact opposite.
