I don't do this as well, and it costs me some times. Photographing birds (which is some of what you're doing) is hard, and when you get into it... it's like being in a zone in sports. You're concentrating on the subject and in tune with it. It doesn't even cross your mind to check the histogram (and then you don't discover you have exposure compensation set wrong and you're over exposing all your shots.)

well so far I love it but Ive got a fair bit of learning to do with the controls. I notice I dont check what Ive taken in the LCD as often.:-)

You might get in the habit of looking at the LCD after shooting with the INFO button set so that you can view the histogram. The DRebel histogram will tell you if you're under/over exposing if you pay attention to the clipping. Also, you can set it so that overexposed areas will flash. I don't pay much attention to the image itself but wish I could see the histogram larger and the image smaller
