Out of curiosity, what is your aperture set to?

I have it on aperture priority and change it depending on the lighting.  Usually 6.3 or 7.1.  I always try to focus on the head of the bird, but it almost always ends up better focused on the body than the head.  I found that most of my good shots are when I used f/6.3.

Have you adjust the camera for your eye sight using the little dial on the side of the eye piece?

Sorry, just seeing your question now.  Yes, I've tried adjusting for my eyesight.  I don't think that would make too much of a difference as the camera/lens is off by such a small amount and I can't notice it in the viewfinder.  Thanks for trying to help.

So I ordered a canon 70d and it came today. I’ll be using my friends 300mm lens until a few months from now when I’ll get my own. Itll be the sigma 150-600. Contemporary. Here are some of the last shots with my point and shoot.

So, does anyone remember how I said there was a Cape May with a crew of Tennessee's and Bay-breasted's outside my dorm room for a couple days straight last week? Well, that one drab Cape May is STILL there, and it brought along a couple of it's friends! Plus, FOS BLPW and NAWA, and my second MYWA of the fall. Is it just me, or are Cape May's always photo friendly? These males were very inquisitive, moving towards me until they ran out of branches. They also seem to have a gang war going on with TEWA's. They're always chasing them away.
