Wonderful series of small birds Jeremy, where did you find such abundance of small birds to shoot at close enough range for that level of detail...?

Thank you! I'm in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area. I am lucky enough to have the Lake Michigan flyway, so migration is usually very good in spring and fall. I just go to my local county parks along the lake, and spend as much time as possible outside. This spring I took off 3 weeks just for migration! I took over 40k pictures and had over 30 warbler species, just in Milwaukee County! I don't usually take off in fall, but I'm also lucky enough to come and go from work as I please. This allows me to chase certain birds as well.

You have to slow down with this "medicine" - looks like addiction already!!! ;)
I'm joking off course - great shots (as usually from you!) and great consistency! Always fun to see your posts: a lot of great shots and lots of interesting birds!

As I posted here a few weeks ago, the finches are on the move! So far in Wisconsin, it's off to the best start since 2012. We were inundated with Pine Siskins early in the month. Most have moved south, but there are still plenty lingering. White-winged Crossbills, Red Crossbills and Evening Grosbeaks have started showing up in decent numbers. And today, we had our first push of Common Redpolls into the southern part of the state. I have seen Red Crossbills and Evening Grosbeaks before, but only a handful of times. I have never seen White-winged Crossbills. That changed on Tuesday, when I had at least 30. Only got briefs looks and a couple doc shots, but still exciting. I had off on Friday and went back to find them. I found at least 45 and followed them around for several hours. 1500+ shots later... 7D mkll / EF 600 f4 ll / 1.4x lll

Now just waiting for Evening Grosbeaks and Common Redpolls (maybe even a Hoary) to show up close to me, hopefully tomorrow!!!

These are from today, just a Wandering Tattler in non-breeding plumage (in this time here it's hard to see one in breeding and I as usually missed the time when some of them were).
I really like the first one. Well done, ISv.

I had a late Pine Warbler coming to the feeders Friday, at a local park along the lake. He's still in full breeding plumage and looking stunning! He would come down to the platform feeder and grab a peanut, fly up to the tree and stick it into the bark. He would then pound on it like a chickadee or nuthatch. Kind of funny watching a warbler do that! 7D mkll / EF600 f4 ll / 1.4x lll

Crop mode testing with Canon 100-400L II and 1.4XIII.

Intentionally went out and tried to take shots that I would not have attempted prior to owning the R5. All of these would have been “reach” limited because 560mm wouldn’t fill the frame well enough to get decent resolution/sharpness in post and using crop mode on the EOS-R would have produced postage stamps.

I’m pretty happy with how it performs - makes me wonder what result I would get from the 100-500L - a slight drop in reach but no teleconverter... Thoughts?
