Yet again, the 6D can do birds

What you wrote was

" don't kid yourself into thinking you can photograph moving birds with an 11-point autofoucus system and 4 fps."

Thats nowhere near what you just said you said:

"but it is not the best tool if you want to get consistently good results (rather than frustration) shooting moving birds"

Your first statement is wrong, your second statement is closer to the truth. But I'd disagree with the frustration bit, I Think it's very enjoyable shooting birds with the 6D, even though I don't have the range of your 500/4 lens.

Heres some examples of birds in flight that I Think ARE in focus, I can assure you the 6D had no problems whatsoever photographing this gull, and I could do it again any day of the week.
