I was just pulling your legs and it is nice to know.... (m)

other dedicated photo birders. When not testing cheap lenses, I am more on searching BIF fun from small and tough BIF (or seldom seen BIFs) birds. Some of the BIFs I hope I can encounter during my limited A55 testing (already lost three weekend days and 7 regular work days due to weather, I do birding during my morning walk before coming to work)..

Black Phoebe

Belted Kingfisher

Redneck Pheasant


American Coot

American Coot

Roughed Wing Sparrow

Barn Swallow (?)

Yes they are. I am primarily a Condor photographer so Pelicans are a great bird to see how it will work on the bird I shoot most. 99% of the birds that were flying this afternoon were Pelicans so I didn't have much choice. But fear not, I can do small erratic birds with no problem. Here's one for you at 500mm. No problem.
