@coastalcon - very nice and sharp, I'll take you word on the Bobolink, I'd have to look it up, not being a "birder".
@Bland, thanks for the kind words. This shot and the rest were taken from my seat on the center aisle 13 rows back, so I was really forced in to using the 70-300.
I look at everything posted here and am a lttle reluctant at times to post my work as I somtimes feel it is not up to the same quality as others.
It was a great show and while I didn't have the opportunity to meet them, but they really look and sounded like they were enjoying themselves.
