Most of the photogs said this was a kingbird, but looking at the books it appears kinda like a phoebe to me. I'm so confused with this birding stuff lol

For anyone interested, D300, 400 f/2.8 AF-S II, TC20E, f/7.1, 1/640 SS.

ah.... 1200mm
wow....
great shot

lol...thanks Greg. Perhaps I left out the most important parts of this equation: GT-5540LS tripod, RRS head, Wimberley Sidekick, remote release, and +20 adjustment on the AF-Fine Tune. :smile:

It is incredible how much simply breating wobbles the image at these focal lengths.

(here's a shot of a Kingbird for comparison - notice the lack of white tips on the tail of your bird and also the banding of the wings)
