The birds around my feeders are more active in the morning before 10:00-10:30 and late afternoon.

The various blue jays (Stellars and Scrub) seem to prefer loudly squawking at 5:30-6 am. Think they want to beat the heat, but I could sure do without them waking me up on a Saturday morning - they are NOT melodious.

Hi Roy,

I think that it depends on the species, but I haven't found any significant common denominator, and have gotten shots at all times of the day, including night heron shots -- go figure, you'd think they'd at least be consistent -- it just means that I always have to have a camera with a long lens with me -- they don't make it easy. . .:-)

Hi Roy,

I haven't tried the strap loops on the lens, but this info will be filed for possible future use. -- I've become accustomed to carrying my cameras in my hand using a Camdapter or Hakuba Grip Strap for security -- even with the SP300 on the cam, you only have to curl your fingers lightly on the camera's grip to keep a secure hold on it, and I can carry it all day without fatigue.

Lately. the only time I put a neckstrap on my cams is when I'm carrying them both at the same time, or I'll wrap a neckstrap with QR clamps around my waist if I think there will be times when I'll need to use both hands extensively.
