why Sports Mode for BIF on the SX50HS?

Wood Stork. Viera Wetlands FL

One of the reasons to use Sports Mode on the SX50HS for BIF, is the speed of getting into the mode. I saw this Wood Stork take off 1000 yards or more beyond me, and had time to twist the Control Dial to Sports, zoom out, and get off a sequence of 10 shots as it flew past me. Poor light, but still I am happy to have the shot at all.
