Stay alert, control the camera, save photos

Have you used mirrorless? With our 7Ds, 5Ds and 1Ds, we leave our camera on always and when wild life appears we are ready to shoot. With mirrorless, that would more quickly run the battery down and I tend to turn off between shots. Or do the R and RP folks find they don’t need to on hikes?My 7DII has a silent shutter mode, not completely silent but quiet enough that is doesn't spook birds at 3 ft min focus distance of 100-400 II. I am a little surprised you don't think battery life of the R is bad compared to the 7 DII. Maybe you have a bad battery for your 7D II.
