Got to ask, what is thst first bird. I don't know that I've seen one before?

Hi Greg: I don't remember. It was at the Tampa zoo, and I asked an employee and was told, but I can't recall the name.

Default Mom and Dad are the proud parents of 3 chicks

Visited the nest yesterday to see what, if any, activity there was. Apparently, mom had 3 babies:

E-30, 50-200mm, EC-14 @283mm

I just ordered an received a used Tokina 400mm f4 ATX manual focus lens. It has a Minolta MD mount so had to order a MD to 4/3 adapter. I got it from JinFinance located in China. Should be here in a week or so as I ordered it a week ago and it usually takes a couple of weeks. The Tokina appears to be in good shape and I'm anxious to try it out. With an EC-14, this should give me about a 1080mm (35mm equiv) focal length. I'm looking forward to finding out what kind of results to expect from this combo.

As much as I'd like to have bought an 50-500Bigma, at 150bucks, the Tokina was worth a look.
