Rafael, looks like you are well on your way with the TCON and more practice will definitely help. It takes a bit to get used to a new lens. As mark said, always shoot in burst mode as it increases your chances for a sharp shot and sometimes you get a shot you were not expecting. In good light try using manual, setting the aperture at about 5.6 and then running the shutter speed as high as you can. I find this produces more good shots for me than any other I have tired, but try anything and everything to see what works best for you.
Wish I had some colorful birds like that to shoot.

Thanks Gene, Annie, Emmanuel and Ted.

Annie, yes those birds are wild. We have a number of parrot species just wander around the suburbs here. I have counted 8 species of parrot within a mile of my house. Of course the species increase as we get further out of town, But I saw a couple of rainbow lorikeets in a city centre park a couple of days ago. Australia, I believe, has the largest number of parrot species of any continent.

Here are a couple of others from last spring
rainbow lorikeet in the back yard- we get flocks of 30 or 40

Couple of galahs at our bird feeder
