Lens for wildlife/bird pics
1

Hi folks,

I haven't been around these ere parts for a long time. I like what you've done with the place 😄

I have a D7000 and have primarily been taking landscape and nature pics using Nikon 35mm 1.8 and 10-20 lenses. I want to start getting into wildlife and bird photography (mainly local - British Columbia - birds i.e. eagles, herons, ducks, Ospreys etc, and maybe critters like otters) and I need a lens with a suitable focal length, so I'm hoping you can offer some recommendations.

I dont want to spend too much, given this is my first foray into this style, although I'm not new to photography at all (been into it most of my life). I'm hoping to spend 1-1.5k on something that would pair nicely with my D7000 (not ready to change cameras yet).

Thank you in advance for your comments.
