Default K-3 First Outing

Did not get anything really special but did start getting familiar with the differences from the K-5. Mostly like the new controls. Set FX button to turn Shake Reduction off and on, for BIF opportunities. No going into menu. Like the buttons for changing focus from spot to multi. Changed AF from button half pressed to AF button, as I had with the K-5. Handling is only slightly different.

1 - Purple Gallinule
2 - Coopers Hawk
3 - Palm Warbler
4 - Wood Stork
5 - Great Blue Heron - Too zoomed to catch whole bird

Default Yellow-rumped warbler

Ed,

Nice shots!

Could #3 be a palm warbler? I caught some shots of a warbler last month, and a colleague identified it as a palm warbler in winter plumage. They look closely-related, which they would be in any case.

You are correct, it is a palm Warbler. I looked up yellow-rumped and it looks totally different.
I believed a Palm Warbler has more yellow. Attached is a Palm warbler from last year.

Nice shots Ed. It seems that everyone on this forum who has upgraded to the K5 is pleased with the new model.
