This is about the only reason I need to put a7R IV on my shopping list.

a7R IV + 200-600! You can't get away from me now, birds! (well, in the near future lol)

Don't kid yourself. They will still get away from you They are smarter than we think.

so very true.  Last week I sat for three hours near a creek waiting for an egret to make an appearance.  100-400 and TC on camera, batteries charged and lots of enthusiasm.  Didn’t see one at all, not even flying by.  Next day I didn’t take the 100-400 just the 25.  I went to the creek to get some landscape shots and 4 egret decided to hang around all day.  They obviously can tell the difference between wide angle and telephoto
