Here's some other birds I shot yesterday.

20D w/100-400L @ 400, Av, f/8, ISO 400

First, a puffed up robin
SS 1/800 sec


Next, a starling. I was really suprised at how low the noise was in the sky
with this one. Only did a very small amount of NR.
SS 1/500 sec


And finally a house sparrow. spotted this guy along the road. The interesting
thing with this one, it looks like I used flash, but it was just the sun reflecting
off the snow into the shadows.
SS 1/500 sec

Hey Woodmeister, I'm jealous. Your iso 400 is less noisy than my iso80. Great detail in the feathers on the sparrow.

Thanks Mullen. I have been really suprised at how low the noise is on the
20D. My next experiment will be to bump up to ISO 800.

Nice shots wood.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"You did an especially nice job, imo, on 1 and 3. Personally, I don't think either the Robin or House Sparrow are the most photogenic of birds, but those are some great captures. That's one of the best Robin shots I've seen, and I could say the same for the Sparrow.

Good definition in the robin's feathers. That starling is a neat looking creature, I'd like to see one myselfwith it's spots sometime. I'd like to have seen a touch less DOF in the last one as the rear branches distract from subject for me personally, especially in the head area. And I'm sure that I don't even need to mention the robin's beak (you've probably already frustrated over that branch). Had you considered trying to clone that one little branch away? It would take a touch of artwork, but well worth the effort perhaps.

More great shots with the new rig.
