If you were to do a site count of lenses at L&D 14 what is the most common lens....I'm guessing it's 500 or 600mm ???

I was there yesterday for about an hour an the action was limited. The eagles are still there. Just hope that it stays cold.

Here's one:

There were also about a dozen pelicans in the morning and if you like mergansers there were a few hundred of them fishing. I actually saw one get chased by an eagle after making it's own catch. The Pelicans were harassing the mergansers as well.

Plenty of big lenses on anchors there. I personally don't like being tied down to one spot. When a lot of people show up a common handheld lens is the Tamron 150-600.

I was there today and it hit 40 degrees. The eagles were barely active. People there were saying last Thursday was one of the better days of the year. I remember it being 15 degrees and sunny that day.

Impressive imagery. We chose owls in Quebec this winter but next winter I'm all over L&D 14 :)
Will 400mm + 1.4 TC be enough?

yes. if you are using a full frame, you might be cropping more than you would like. but on a crop, a 400+1.4 would be very beneficial. I shot mine with a 300+1.4 and a 1.3 crop body. minimal cropping on most
