    Yeah, I have about 40 Cowbirds in my backyard at all hours right now, so I've been playing all day. The males are tough. I can't get their heads and bodies both exposed without the heads ending up overly "shiny." When I get their heads right, their bodies are just shadows (like above). My 40d retains about zero shadow detail (especially at over 300 iso), so I think this might be as good as I can get with my current setup.

    I just put an offer in on a house with a much nicer backyard for bird photography (not a requirement for the house...I'm just getting lucky). The lighting is very uniform thanks to some big trees. Unfortunately, this house is bigger than my current house so I'm going to have to blow some money on furniture (not my idea) if my bid is accepted, and thus, my next camera upgrade will be pushed back even further

    I wonder if the T3i would be better for backyard birding than the 40D?

    Maybe, but my T3i sits on top of my personal microscope at work or is in the hands of one of my students 100% of the time.

    I wouldn't say that this is my best bird shot, just my latest that I took with my new 70-300L lens. I'm hoping to get more opportunities to test out the lens. In the larger linked version you can see the snow being flicked off.
