Subject: [LABIRD-L] Plaquemines, yesterday
David Muth posted a narrative of our trip to lower Plaquemines Parish
yesterday, and I have uploaded some photos from the SWKI extravaganza
across from Ft. Jackson. For what it is worth, I used a Canon SX60 with
65X optical zoom to get the close-up of one kite perched in the roost tree
at a distance of about 200 yds. I have ordinarily used a Canon DSLR with
300 mm prime lens to photograph birds, and the image quality is superb with
that setup, but for distant birds, I don't think the S60 can be beat.
