First time for me to see a young waxwing. Their colour and plumage isn't the same as the grownup version.......cheers......Don

I've never seen an immature CW, until now. Good captures!

Thanks Buzzsaw. I'm not real happy with these. I used the Tamron 1.4 tc, and I've noticed a slight degradation in image quality when I use this add on. The detail suffers. Don't think I'm going to attach it much anymore......cheers....Don.

Nice pictures Don! Love the crest on the immature, great profile. I was thinking of getting a Tamron 1.4 for my nikkor 300 f4 but decided to spend a little more(actually allot more)and and go for the OEM from Nikon. I'm very happy with the results.

Good choice Kent. I've actually been thinking of switching systems lately. Not real happy with Pentax and their long tele selections. It would be nice to have something like the Nikon setup you use, or a Canon with a 100-400L with IS. I held one of those yesterday when I met someone else out shooting birds. Not much heavier than my Pentax with the FA*300 4.5, and the photos I've seen from others here using that combo are indeed impressive. I'm waiting to see what this supposed new high end body that Pentax is coming out with is like. Better be soon, or they'll be losing me...cheers....Don.

I also have the Tamron 1.4x and hardly ever use it as it REALLY slows down my already slow 80-400mm Nikkor. I will break it out if I have a subject that is far away and sitting pretty still.

I hear you Mike. Might ebay it, as I've been ebaying a lot of my lenses lately. Only keeping the ones I actually use....cheers......Don.
