    Dread, I like that first one best. Great sharpness color and contrast.

    First try of a bird in flight. Must get a faster focusing lens, so I can get more "bird head" and less "bird ass"

    I know how you feel, a right pain to get the buggers in focus. I gave up and went manual last weekend. It didn't work

    Any idea what the bird in your picture is called? I can identify a few on here, but many I don't know.
    I suspect these are a crossbeak, but I don't know for sure. Anyone care to identify this variety? I was lucky to photo the male & female.

    The bird in Jekostas photo looks like a cedar waxwing, but I cannot see the distinctive red tipped wing feathers or yellow tipped tail feathers.

    Good call - it is a cedar waxwing. The picture above is the female, this is the male.

    That's how I feel too. But seems like the faster focusing lenses are so large and expensive that it is actually easier to get a faster focusing camera!
