Wow - these are terrific. I haven't looked at many bird pics recently, but I'm sure glad I looked at these wonderful photos.

Thanks Jer, I quite some time never post bird photos in this sub-forum but in the 300mm+ lens sub-forum instead.

Thanks Rupert, our this trip is quite badly planned, spending most of the time on travelling,as such I missed some rare birds. Supposed to have 10+ species of woddpeckers in one of the parks but I only captured 3 which I've already got last time. Got a 4th one but seriously backlight.

Thanks Terry, have you considerd the Sigma 150-500? It's few times cheaper but loses out in sharpness which can step down to bring the gap closer...
