Birds like this are extremely difficult to photograph. Great catch.

Using manual focus on something that moves around a lot is a form of masochism - but you did eventually get this photo, and that is what matters.

In this case, Manual, because A. The lens is a bit noisy in Autofocus mode B. Patience is a virtue, and the reward can be gratifying C. Battery- I only have one. And like you said, I get the results in the end.
