Ya I definitely do, I think there super...keeps the bumps and scrapes off your lens and all the sticks and branches that can mark the lens as your moving through trails and such. I really like them a lot.
O and the Gray Jay does not come with the lens coat

I wouldn't be surprised if you're also the one that tags these little fellas. :lol:

Well you can see the leash in that last photo by Jeff!!
;-)a

Wish I had put a LensCoat on my 100-400. Had it hung with a BlackRapid strap and wasn't paying attention. Was wearing my Levis and the dang pocket rivets were rubbing up against the lens and marred the paint. Crap. Yea I am kind of anal like that.

I'm not a birder or a field biologist, but don't they tag animals to track population growth and contraction/migration? Which is time-sensitive, so can't really stop doing it.

Well that maybe true for somethings but this survey was started to get some kind of inside into the decline of the gray jay in one 60km stretch of bush alone a hwy, They climb up to the nests and band the chicks,.. The ones they miss they band by capturing by hand ( all gray jays will come to hand for food ) and the Gray Jay is territorial and nests right where it lives in February so it never leaves its cash of food it has stored in tree's and behind bark on tree's, apparently they can remember up to 500 places they have hidden there food stashes, I don't believe anything as ever been done to try and stop the decline in number's and they have been doing this for over 50 year's. Of course I've never understood human's need to molest in order to understand and I guess that comes from my life of living in these woods. I know its a fine line but Gray Jays are still everywhere and I do not believe in danger of extinction, .......well no more than you and I. Now on this same 60km stretch hundred's of animals are run over and killed by speeder's on there way to and from the vacation destination's, last year I seen or heard of Deer, Bear, Moose, Owl's, almost every fox kit, Pine Marten and people.... well just about everything that moves and we do nothing to help prevent this. Just all seems a little out of balance to me.

Whoever's doing it locally (field biologist or conservationist/ranger​) might have a better scientific reason of why they do it than you or I have. Probably a good idea to contact the closest nature preserving facility to ask for their explanation of it.

When I saw your shot with the double ankle bracelets I thought maybe all the banded birds I've see are really yours.
