  3. Shhhh, that's not something you shouldn't risk saying. You're setting yourself up to be blamed for jinxing things for the rest of us if tomorrow's bird ends up having dual citizenship but doesn't reside here.
  4. I can't find any reference to the map other than what's being discussed on page 27 & 28 of this thread, am I missing something?

  7. Perhaps @Kevin could pin it up top? Definitely a map worth looking at, once you click on a few pins and realize what is being mapped.
  8. Today's bird isn't code 5-6. You're good to go. πŸ‘
  9. There are issues that I have with the eye detect AF on my R6 while using the RF 100-500mm too. While the eye detect AF is great, it's not perfect. Let me reword that, there are a lot of imperfect situations where the eye detect can fail and the AF misses the mark. As an example, if the eye detect locks on to a woodpecker clinging to the side of a tree and the woodpecker turns its head and AF loses sight of the eye, you could find your AF suddenly going up and down the front of the tree while the AF searches the closest object looking for an eye. Any shots you might have been taking at the time would be on the soft side. I speak from a bit of experience of taking some really sharp photos of one particular woodpecker friendly tree trunk. That's just one situation where eye detect can be frustrating. It's a great tool, but it's not a, 'One Tool Does All', kind of tool. I highly recommend using two back buttons for focusing on any camera that allows it, it makes working with/without the eye detect a lot easier for me.

  12. For the price of an EF/RF adapter, it might be worth trying the 150-600 before investing in an RF lens. If the 150-600 on the R7 isn't a huge improvement on your keeper ratio, then it hasn't cost you much to find out if the combo is good enough to keep you happy until you can get the lens you want.
  13. Nice photo, @DaBirb. It'd be nice to see the original instead of a photo of a comptuer screen, but you can still tell it's a nice photo. What camera did you use to take that shot?
  14. Is this one of those weird code 5 or 6 birds that they use in BRDL, or is this a Winter Wren-Sedge Wren hybrid? 😁 Sorry, I couldn't resist.
  15. If you're worried about focal length, wouldn't an EF/RF adapter to pair your current 150-600mm lens to the new R7 be a cheap solution, or are they not compatible?

  18. I see nothing inappropriate, and if it was inappropriate the Mods would/should have been notified and the post removed. I suggest that you look up the meaning of the word. You can do this easily by highlighting the word, right clicking on it and then selecting Look Up. I often use this method to better understand words, and/or phrases that I'm not sure of. πŸ˜‰
  19. I agree, it would also be easier for @DaBirb to upload them directly from the computer they're being opened on. Transferring them to a second device by way of a photo just adds unnecessary steps, and reduces the image quality substantially.
  20. I was wondering the same thing and thought it might have been part of it's last resting place frozen to it's feet. I had no idea they carried things around with their feet like raptors do.
  21. You might be a birder if you spend your online time getting sucked into some bird related websites that are nothing but a waste of time, but you enjoy wasting your time because it's bird related. https://www.flockingaround.com/post/rare-bird-codes
