My D700 is not my standard goto camera for birding. But this past weekend, I encountered some difficult lighting conditions (light rain and low overcast) on these fiendishly active subjects, so my D300 stayed in the bag the entire weekend.

Anyhow my point is (as many others have also stated before me) is that the D700 can be pressed into service as a decent birding camera, even on subjects on 5" in length. Of course the D700 does seem to handle cropping somewhat decently too. As usual the D700 is a killer cam.

These are ISO 2000, 2500, 1100, 1800, and 2500 respectively. No noise reduction was applied.

BTW the wood warblers portrayed are Blackburnian, Magnolia, Black-throated Green, and my personal favourite warbler the Canada

The thrush is a Swainson's and one of the best songsters in the forest. All these birds are on breeding territory at Cold Lake Provincial Park in Alberta, Canada.

Best regards, SteveK
