Wow! That's an incredible shot at 35mm equivalent 3000mm (539mm). Was the camera on a tripod or handheld? Regardless, the P1000 continues to impress me. Thanks for posting.

Thank you very much for the nice comment! I'm a handheld shooter and I only have a Hama tripod (not a top brand) for night or very long exposures. Thus I shot that blackbird handheld in P Mode, AF Spot and continuos H mode, short sequences (3-4 images). I shot three sequences, one was out of focus and I selected the best image.

I know the feather texture is awful at 100% view, but the alternative would have been a perfect image of a black spot on the top of an old antenna

All the best my friend,
