I set up a User mode for BIF and wanted to know: is 25 points "better" than 9 points, specifically for birds which are farther away than those you are posting here?
Cheers!
If you can keep the bird in the center of the view finder, then the 9 point should in theory be better because the computer has fewer calculations to do and can do them with greater accuracy. 9 point is what I would use from something like bikers, cars etc. With birds, I can't keep them consistently in the center enough to ensure the 9 point cover the target.

So it really just depends on how erratic the bird flys and how well you are able to keep it in the center of the frame.
