I spent a lovely morning out birding with friends Dali, and Rainey. The weather was great, cool, blue sky with big, puffy white clouds for just the right amount of diffusion, and not too many intruding citylife sounds.
We we went out with the hopes of finding Stilts, and Avocets with chicks or on nests, but we found few Stilts, and only saw two or three Avocets. Overall there were very few shorebirds at all in either of the places we birded yesterday.
We did see quite a few other birds so the morning wasn’t a total bust.
It was also a great opporunity to really give my 300mm f4 lens a workout. I hadn’t really since getting it back from Nikon. It works really well. It’s much quieter now, and AF (auto-focus) seems quite snappy, even with my 1.4x Teleconverter on it.
