I decided to sell my 100-400L, it was nice having it but i don't use it enough to justify keeping my money locked up with it. I think i've used it 5 times total since purchasing it in June last year. Went to 2 airshows with it, twice to the zoo, and once to the avian photoshoot.

I had my 135L with me today and this bird has been lingering outside my work for the past two days and it showed up again today.. **Need ID from bird experts!! This bird is active during the day and extremely active during the night.. doesn't like to fly at all.. runs majority of the time and when it flys.. it chirps alot.

I baited it with some saltine crackers and shot these... and cropped ofc.

Really nice shots of a Killdeer, for sure :) If you're not primarily out birding, you'll be fine. Want to really impress with cropped shots off the 135, though? Bring us some similar quality shots of a Red-tailed Hawk or Peregrin in the wild ;)

After I retired, mowed @ the local golf course and there was a hatch of about 6 young ones that I saw often. Cutest things to watch and they do absolutely refuse to fly unless a last resort. And dotto on the hawk or peregrine... or eagle!! Shooting 280 for those and the cropping is my undoing-don't work. But to each his own.

Great shots! Regarding the telephoto I find that even with 400m major cropping is often necessary. It depends on your subject and how close you are able to get. Some birds just don't let you get very close. In any event you are getting great results so keep up the good work.
