Note that this little guy is missing a chunk of his head feathers. I don't believe its molt, but probably a scalping from a Bald Eagle?
I've noticed that the VR setting on the 300/2.8 VRII sounds a lot quieter w/ the TC17 attached, so I'm hoping that when my TC-14E II gets fixed that I'll have to decide which one to use. I'm looking forward to testing it out next week!
Thanks ProCam! And thank you, Honey!
