    I ran across a couple of eagles, but I kind of screwed up the exposure. I used a 100-400mm L with a 1.4X II on a FF - so I set the aperture to f/8, but I must have bumped the dial and ended up at f/11. Which caused my shutter speed to be 1/2 of what I wanted.
    Cropped heavily, this is what I ended up with:

    Mark, Mark & Joel - Thanks.

    There were lots of ducks here also (thousands), but they were very skittish with the eagles, hawks, and falcons around (they eat a lot of ducks). As a result, I was not able to get any decent close shots of ducks (which is why I went here). So I was very happy to be able to get the eagles (I'll take an eagle over a duck any day). I would not have been able to get these with my 7D - even with the crop sensor. I had the ISO at 1250 and the focus is so good on the 1D X, that it can handle the cropping. Plus the extra FPS rate really helps.

    Again... thanks.

    Pat

    I always seem to be on the wrong side of things.
