For starters, I wasn't in a AF.C but was in AF.S.

Then he talks about the number of focus points. However the birds move so fast I am lucky to simply keep them in the frame...


You're shooting high shutter speed moving stuff so you might consider:

Disable shutter button focus and use rear AF

AF-C & Single Center AF Point. Just keep it on the bird. You establish focus and maintain rear af, follow bird and fire shutter. Some folks use burst, not my cup of tea.

Turn of SR. You don't need it with shutter past say 1/400, can only slow things down. You just want to fire the shutter when you press it
