Wow! This is amazing tracking. Would you please share your camera settings for this BIF shoot? Thanks!

Thank you.

For AI Servo I use I use 8 point expansion most of the time.  Tracking sensitivity +1, Acce/deccel tracking -1, AI Servo 1st image priority 'focus', AI Servo 2nd image priority +1, Auto AF point selection iTR AF. That's what I used for above shots. Tracking sensitivity -1 works better if there are other subjects that may come in front of the main subject while tracking. It actually doesn't slow tracking from my experience unless bird is flying fast.

Sometimes I use central zone for smaller birds and birds that may fly fast towards me. In these situations I find it useful to have more focus points.

I have customized some buttons. I left the shutter button for metering and AF with single focus. 'AF on' button for servo with 8 point expansion. * button for central zone.
