Aside from what's been already mentioned, let me add large-eyed insects to the list including bees, dragonflies. Using my EF100-400mm, it locked on the eyes of dragonflies and tracked them for as long as I could keep them in the frame.

+1 for bees and dragonflies, with 70-200 f4 (RF and Ef) and 24-105. With the RF 600 f11, as long as you get the target box over the bird you're tracking, eyes get locked on to almost immediately, even in flight.
