Thanks to Amy for navigating the boat while I used the 2x on the 600mm for this shot which was handheld. Not bad for a wild eagle at 1200mm

I was out in the yard enjoying that yellow round hot thing in the sky, when I heard a "Clacking" sound coming from a neighbours roof about 70 odd feet away, I got the camera to it and to my delight a Mistle Thrush making a right racket.

Thank you! I'd wanted a Dove for a while. They live out back but getting
a decent portrait isn't easy for me.
