Birders - what's your gear setup?

I am a beginner birder & bird photographer, and plan on upgrading to:

- A7R IV

- 200-600mm

- 1.4 TC

- Peak Design CF tripod

I have a lot of Peak Design, and love everything they make. My current setup is with an Olympus OM-D mark ii, and looks like:

- Olympus + Peak design strap over one shoulder + chest

- Binoculars attached to my belt via a Peak Design Clip

- Dont use the tripod yet (not warranted given Olympus camera)

Im trying to plan out what my new setup would look like, with a much larger lens, TC, and tripod. My plan so far is:

- Peak Design 20L zip backpack to carry water, rain jacket, extra batteries, Tripod, etc.

- Binoculars attached to right backpack strap via PD Clip

- Sony A7R IV + 200-600 attached to lower left hip belt via PD Clip (not positive this setup will work due to length + weight. However, PD has a couple pics of it working here).

- Peak Design range pouch to have 1.4TC readily available

Curious to hear what kind of gear you guys are using, as well as your setup so everything is comfortable and readily accessible for quick changes? Thanks
