Today was my first encounter with a Yellow-breasted Chat, the largest of the Warblers.

For whatever reason, my uploaded images are looking rough :oops: trust when I say that there's no pixelation or heavy noise when viewed in Lightroom..

Matt...I agree with Archibald. They look pretty darn good to me.

I was at max range yesterday trying to photograph the Yellow-breasted Chats, and happened to capture a few other species while waiting. This is hand held @ 1000mm on my 80D, so effectively a 1600mm FOV.

I'm not too keen on the results my 500 produces using the 1.4xIII, but I'm really surprised by what I'm getting with the 2xIII. Much more detailed than the 1.4 it seems. Can a TC get out of calibration like a lens, and need a trip to Canon?

I have thought that once but cleaning the pins with a pencil eraser seems to make life better. I even put it in the box and put it on the shelf. I have been shooting everything with the 1.4III on as of late. Cool Yellow Throat.. They are a fav of mine. Honestly theres no way the 2x should be sharper than the 1.4.. IMO

Getting closer is the way to go though.

That's a nice Yellow Throat, Jeff. And those are my exact thoughts, the 2x is supposed to be the compromise TC. I'm going to go erase my 1.4x now :)

It worked for me. I got real lucky with a bunch that last couple years right at the house.

With the 1.4III ........ Now I have Indigo Buntings and their much harder to get close to right now

The Yellowthroats are very inquisitive, and will stick around for a bit. Fun little birds to photograph. But like you say, Buntings are the real challenge. They’re masters of landing perfectly behind something that obstructs your shot haha
