Re: 90D! I like it very much!!

Very, very nice.

I would suggest the following.

Now that you've gotten a few, I would try to be a little more patient. I see on some the bird was flying towards you. That means a second or two later the bird would have taken up a lot more of the frame.

Also, I like your settings except maybe use a shutter speed of 1/200 or max 1/2500. 1/3200 is not necessary and you can take it back in ISO a little.

have you tried to crop the shots where the bird doesn't take up enough of the screen. It would be great to see how good crops turn out.

Again, a lot of excellent shots!!

Those flight shots already crap 20~50% and the those tern and sandpiper not really close to me.

Stunning!

Not bad for a camera 'Only good for family snaps (Re: Dpreview review)

The 90d seems like an extremely capable camera in the right hands

Did any of us really think otherwise? It had to be at least as good as the 80D. Which is no slouch. Clearly it is a true upgrade. It maybe the review is by people that can't appreciate DSLRs.

Re: 90D! I like it very much!!

Great shots, well done!

Looks like the Sigma is a much more reliable lens than the Tamron equivalent, or your technique is a lot better than mine.

I used similar settings to you for the BIF shots though but my results are far crappier (to stay polite) so I would be quite keen to hear your thoughts or what I have done wrong, please see my post in another thread

Thank you for your help, much appreciated.

Excellent collection of photos!

But I'm curious, what is that guy doing, walking around in mud, holding a fish?

Maybe he's a fish farmer?

Then for sure you're taking them way too early.

The ninth is beautiful. How much was it cropped?

Your shutter speed is too fast. Slow down slightly so you can lower the ISO.

Then you have to be patient and wait until they're closer.

Shooting BIF takes a lot of practice. Continuously.

Re: 90D! I like it very much!!

Thank you. It doesn't explain why the stationary subjects shots are blurry though... i tried slower shutter speed and still was getting fuzzy shots at 600mm

Use Image Stabilization.  Or use a tripod.

Yeah, I sometimes choose to ignore the DPReview text guys and DPReview TV video guys who have been anti-Canon for many years now.

They don’t do reviews of products. They are sitting at the edge of their seats waiting for new and fancy technologies. They serve their own interests first.

They did not manage to see the 90D and 6D Mark II as two fine DSLR cameras.

To the OP:

Beautiful photographs! Thanks for sharing. Hope to see more from you.

I only meant to slow down shutter speed when faster than 1/2000 sec.

You've got shutter speeds slower than 1/200 sec and some under 1/100.

That's way too slow. There are 3 issues:

1) Not in focus. I doubt that's the problem since you have other issues.

2) Too slow shutter speed means you have camera shake.

3) Too slow shutter speed means the bird is moving and you're not freezing it.

At 600mm you need a pretty fast shutter speed even when the bird appears to be almost not moving.  By pretty fast I mean at least 1/400 or maybe even up to 1/1000.

Those birds are moving even if you cannot see it. And 600mm requires even faster.

So I'm telling you what sounds like two contradictory things but are not.

For birds in flight 1/2000 or maybe even 1/2500. Anything faster can be used to lower ISO and close down aperture a bit.

For birds that appear to be still and you want to use some shutter speed to lower ISO and close aperture don't go too slow since you may not be holding the 600mm lens steady enough or you're not freezing the bird.

Maybe the lens issue.

Sorry I am not sure I am following you. All the shots I posted are either 1/2000 or 1/2500, not 1/200 or 1/100 which I agree would be way to slow to freeze a moving bird.
