Am I getting there? Can't justify more that the 55-250mm for the minute.

Another really nice shot.  Very well photographed (and looks great on the monitor).

If this isn't deeper than a 50% crop, then it should print very nicely too.

If you do want to move up to the next level of birding lenses at some point, all of Canon's offerings in the $1200 - $1700 range are excellent.  They all have their particular strengths and weaknesses, depending on your quarry.  I could help with recommendations if you'd like (I've shot with all but the new 70-300L IS).

Happy shooting!
