    I went out looking for small migratory birds with my D500 and the 200-500. I ended up finding much more than I could have imagined. In fact, this turned out to be my best birding photography day yet.

    Wow, Mark! Fantastic day! Fantastic video and yes...fantastic shots!

    Thanks for putting this together and sharing it here. These are the days we live for and rarely ever get.

    I'm totally in love with my new D500 and have it combined with my equally awesome 200-500mm lens, as you've done. They are quite the pair and I hope to get even 1/10 of the shots you got here.
     
  5. Excellent video and stills. The eagle shots at the end were stellar.

    You are very welcome. The D500 paired with the 200-500 is a great birding combo. Most likely the best on the market at this time.
