finally found some settings that work for me. p950

Some from this morning. Warblers can be quite challenging at times and I will not kid you I get way more shots of empty branches than I do of birds.

Decided to shoot in S mode. Try for a minimum of 1/320th when possible. Medium focus box. Raw. No ADL and spot metering. Single shot mode. 100-400 ISO seems to work best for me and got to have a lot of light. AFF focusing. I crop for composition so try not to fill the frame unless ISO gets up there.

Female Pine Warbler

Male Yellow-rumped Warbler

Male Pine Warbler

Black-capped Chickadee

Yellow Warbler

Eastern Kingbird

Insanity is buying the same camera over and over again and expecting different results.
