So the R5 and maybe R6 will track the eye of a bird?

If the processor is powerful enough this might be very interesting. Or it could be a gimmick.

The 9th will be a fun day.

I wonder if birds’ eye can tracked at the distance we normally take pictures of them.

Yes, it will be an interesting day

Maybe that's going to be the biggest argument for having an 800mm F11 instead of cropping from a 100-400F5.6L2? Both give you the exact same amount of light gathering, but the former will let you throw four times as many pixels at the bird's eye, which should help with recognition and tracking.
