Gorgeous bird Roy, great capture. That combo does work well! I wonder if it's true, I heard from a pro shop a long time ago that the shorter the TC the better the results? I've a TC 1.7 and don't get images that sharp.

Thinking about migrating south, no doubt. Tough bird. Very nice image.

You certainly had enough reach for this nice shot! I agree, a 500 or 600mm lens would be so nice!
