Steve- Do you set the focus point off-center or do you focus on the eye then recompose the shot?

Good question Alan. It depends on how active the bird is, and how big the image is in the viewfinder, but you are correct in that I usually focus on the eye, and then re-compose the shot while holding the shutter halfway down to maintain that focus. The biggest problem is sometimes those stubborn birds don't cooperate very well and move their heads. Meaning that I have to refocus and try again. I keep telling them to hold still, but for some reason they don't listen to my instructions!
