Got an approximate size, Gerry? It's one of the sandpipers, but there are at least 3 where the size is the biggest differentiator. Throw in that winter plumage for so many of them is sort of dull; your best indicator is the leg and bill colours and bill shape/length. The legs look yellow, or maybe yellow-green. Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs and Spotted Sandpiper are all possible. This time of year, range won't tell you a lot - they could be migrating through.

Jon,

He was 10-12" tall. Does this make any sense? Here is another shot, I think it is the same bird, on a different day.

His friend is definitely yellow-footed, but I think it is a Heron.

That second one immediately above is definitely a Snowy Egret (in the Heron family) (20-27"). The first one looks like a Willet (14-17"); notice his legs are darkish, not the yellowish on your first post(s). At around 10-12", I'd guess the first is a Lesser Yellowlegs. Willets and the Yellowlegs are members of the Sandpiper family.

Thank you Jon. I am impressed with the little camera. I wish I'd read the manual before going on vacation. I would have used the appropriate tracking focus with spot lightmetering/ As it is, I used the 'normal' square AF area which is too large and the focus tends to be on the more contrast rich background (sand or waves). The 750 mm equivalent tele is quite impressive...

If mounted on a tripod, can the camera's entire set of controls (including zooming) be handled through the remote app?

I use a Canon remote app for my 6D, but obviously it can't do zooming, but it can change the focus point.

I'm mostly interested in zooming capabilities from my ipad.


Sony A7 III and some lenses

Recently got this camera and it is a great travel camera. We have a 650D with a 24 to 105 and while the images are better for low light and pixel peeking the SX700HS does a very good job. In particular the zoom is it greatest advantage.

We had a few cameras in the same place last weekend and managed to take a few photos to compare the different cameras. All taken in Program mode, ISO200, wide angle and focus set to the centre. While these are reduced in size, if you pixel peek the full resolution versions you can see a difference.

Olympus OMD-M10 14-42mm

I need to have my bird book handy to take a guess and it is nowhere near at present. You could try www.birdforum.net (external link) and post on the Bird ID board. The folks there are very helpful.
