My father and I drove out to Oak Hammock on Merritt Island today.

We’d heard some nice reports about some fun warblers there, so I thought I’d give it a try.

Unfortunately, I left my camera battery in my charger, but my dad let me borrow his Canon EOS 1D mark 4.

It was pretty fun to use–nice and fast, and noise levels were lower than my 7D.

I didn’t see a lot of warblers there, but it was nice to find a couple . It was also fun to see many Ovenbirds and a .

It was interesting, though.  Noise levels were better than my 7D, but there was a bit more noise than I anticipated. I took these warbler shots at 2500 ISO, and noise was pretty visible, so I had to work on the backgrounds a little.
