Really...?!
Where in WA are you?

Thanks Lordje. I'll try and do better next time. He was here last night, just getting too dark for the old E500.

Lived in Tacoma for the past 20+ years but now I am back to my roots, living on the Key Peninsula. Surrounded by trees, weeds blackberries, and birds
(and all sorts of other critters too, but no deer. Maybe the bear scared them off)

They are a fun and interesting bird to have around aren't they?

I tried again last night. Even pushing the ISO as hard as I dared for the old E500 (320 ) It's still hard to get a shot. Shooting on burst, 3 frames, the 3 shots don't look connected at all. The guy is never still.

You may even see a little movement in the photos....

Yeh, hitting the trees, sounds like a jackhammer!

Someday it will hopefully show up in better light, but until then you will get better results at ISO400 on the e500. That's as high as I would go unless it's a case of get the shot or else.

Already got enough noise in these at 320, that's as far as I "push" it these days.

Ken: run some tests at ISO400. On many Olympus cameras the "odd" ISO is noisier than the normal "even" ISO. So going from ISO200 to ISO400 may be no noisier, or even slightly less noisy than going from ISO 200 to ISO 300.

That's witchcraft...
I'll give it a try, one stop may help a bit.
I shot 23 frames to get that one shot last time.
