Yellow Tail Warbler and Mocking Bird
Lens: Tokina 400 5.6 AT-X AF Camera: Pentax K-5 
Posted By: Venom3300, 11-13-2014, 03:05 PM

ISO 4000-6400. I had given up on birding for the day and saw these guys in front of me. The lighting wasn't great but I had to try.

Nice shots. I like the contrast of the bird against the background.

Good job. Warblers are usually tiny and fast moving creatures. They are not easy to shoot. Was that using a manual focus lens?

Its an auto focus lens. The Tokina 400 5.6 AT-X AF. These were shot on center point continuous I believe.

The smaller bird is a Ruby-crowned Kinglet (Regulus calendula), a member of the kinglet family (Regulidae, which includes Firecrest and Goldcrest of Europe).

The noise is relatively well handled. Great Shots.
