I think that's a Mountain Bluebird - he's neat looking - doesn't have the "brown" around the chest like the Eastern Bluebirds I see here in GA.

That BushHawk camera mount seems to work very well for you.

Your an excellent photographer, Roger. However the Canon full frame and the Canon 500 mm lens has to be a heavy combination.

Do you find the Bushhawk has advantages over a tripod or a monopod ?

Do you find any disadvantages of a BushHawk compared to using a monopod or tripod ?
