Here are a couple of little winter visitors - similar in size to warblers and just about as active. Great tune-up for the spring migration a few months away and "real world" test of the new version 80-400 G as a bonafide birding lens.

For this effort I used the 80-400 without the 1.4 TC and was blown away with the sharpness this lens exhibits. Both images were again shot at ISO 1600 (still basically no light-overcast) and this time were handheld with the VR on.

Thanks for looking - - - Al
