BIF camera. Broad daylight, no problem. (I presume)

I don't shoot BIF, however for some birds/wildlife snaps I take in the park, the black focus points are sometimes hard to identify in the feather texture since they blend in colour/brightness. I really missed a shot a couple of days ago when shooting a lovely ballet lady when an eagle flew in front of dark pine trees - overcast bright day - I literally did not know where my focus point was in AI-Servo since the focus point blended into the dark pine tree background. If you shoot in single shot, at least the focus point blinks red. In AI-servo, it remains black and you never get any visual focus point feedback.

If you are a BIF shooter, I would certainly try the camera out before you make and final decisions. I cannot fairly comment on BIF and the various shooting conditions that might be experienced.
