Downy Woodpecker. I am still after his bigger cousin, the Hairy Woodpecker, but those guys are beyond shy.

Yes Foxes tend to tear their faces up big time.. Fur is an art Matt, much like feathers but different... getting the detail between the hairs and get as little noise as possible is the trick. For the close shots especially.

About as good as I could get from the 7DII.. 5 minute processing job.

Matt, it looks like a Hermit Thrush to me. Attaching a Hermit Thrush I saw a few days ago.

Just received the lens Tuesday and these are couple of the first shots. Female Purple Finch.

I've never used a zoom lens for wildlife photography, so I'm having to get used to this as it felt kind of strange twisting the zoom ring. I definitely see the usefulness of the zoom though. This will be my new side kick. I've been without a sidekick ever since I sold my 400 5.6 about 3 or so years ago. One thing that I first noticed is the focus doesn't have the zippness compared to the 600 f4, at least on the 7D2, but I have not used it with the 1Ds yet, but it is quick.

These are two excellent shots. I'm particularly fond of the cardinal.

Welcome aboard! We are glad you are here :) Very nice intro photos, very crisp and free of clutter.

I have to make a conscious effort to use this zoom at anything other than 400mm, so that would be something I'd need to get used to as well :-P

Thanks. Yeah, me, too. But there have been so many times when a bird pops up right in front or behind me, so it will definitely be handy.
