I'm assuming you're using this filter or something similar on ebird.org/targets to get that number?

Correct. eBirds yet to have implemented target species for major regions. It seems like it would be pretty easy to do sense they’ve recently made it possible to find targets from individual hotspots.

I didn’t realize Henslow’s Sparrows made it that far north. I still need it for the ABA (48th top need). I hopefully I can pick it up in Florida this winter, however it’s unlikely. 

Yes, they make it pretty far into the southeast part of the state, but are more uncommon further west for some reason. Good luck, these guys are tough to locate when they’re not singing.

That's what I thought, but I wasn't sure why. It just doesn't feel like a four.

 

It’s ‘cause of all the stuff in front of the bird.

Otherwise, sharpness is good, lighting is good, and interesting color is definitely NOT lacking. 🙂

Could I have avoided that by shooting from a higher angle?

Maybe… but I like the eye level. That’s one of the most important things.

yes, I know that. I now have THREE books on bird photography that I've purchased.

That is true. On very noisy photos it does often produce a weird pattern in the background, they did just release a 'severe noise' mode which I haven't checked out yet. I'll experiment with some of my 10000 ISO photos from deep in the the jungle right now to see if there is any improvement. 

@Connor Cochrane--I may have asked this of you before, but what lens do you use with your 7D for birds?
