Note that I'm not implying that this had anything to do with your birding example - I'm just presenting it here to hopefully prevent someone else from making the same mistake.

One thing that tripped me up when initially using 5.5AF burst mode was using 1-area [spot] focus on a moving subject like a critter. The first shot would be focused but subsequent shots in the burst weren't - simply because the spot focus point is difficult to keep on-target as the subject moves erratically and/or my brain tries to compose the shot [pushing the focus off-target].

23-area focus helps but presents its own challenges at times. I haven't had much chance to play with focus tracking, but it appears focus tracking requires some practice and somewhat "agreeable" subjects to get the target in the sights.

I'll likely also add a red dot sight for use when birding.

Ah, yes i remember, i had it on spot to, so next time when im up there.. i test the other settings to, tnx
