    Thanks Arnt.

    Here's a couple of 70-200 f/4 + 1.4x II TC shots in proper conditions. I really like chickadees, they're about my favorite backyard bird. They seem so happy and cheerful.

    Not sure what type of duck this is, after fighting with some Mallards over a styrofoam cup - it successfully caught this fish. It was a nice distraction while waiting for the eagles to get close enough for a decent shot - which didn't happen! There are plenty of eagles, they were just camera shy today.



    Heavily cropped 5D3, 70-200vii+2xiii (400mm) ISO 200, f/7.1, 1/500 (I was missing the 1.6x crop today!)

    Looks like the new lens is very sharp.....did you do an AF micro adjustment?

    On a whim I decided to catch a flight to Vancouver, and see the Snowy Owls at Boundary Bay. They are still there in significant numbers, after last year's irruption. This is proving to be one of the smartest things I've ever done. The shooting here is utterly fantastic. Got several BIF's, plus there are a lot of short-eared owls that are quite active. Loving the 1DX with the 500 f/4 and 1.4 TC. Two more days and then I head home... I'll send a link to an album when I'm done!

    Great shot, I am curious ... how did you know where to go once you arrived in Vancouver?

    Thanks, Joel. I had heard about Boundary Bay after last year's Snowy Owl irruption. This area got inundated with snowys, and the photos coming out of here were incredible. I kept tabs on the bird sighting reports, and found out that the owls were back again this year. The numbers are down, but it is still spectacular (up to 20 a day in the area). I sent an email to a local photographer, and he kindly responded right away with directions and tips. The bay is only 10 minutes drive from the hotel, so it's really easy to get to. And fortunately the weather has been great ---- it was raining sideways when I arrived but the last couple days have been brilliant.

    Here's one from today --- a short-eared owl, which can also be found here in good numbers.

    I think you are peaking Joel's interest... the birder in Joel has got to be going crazy right now.
