Hard to give just one, but I especially like chats, hummingbirds, sunbirds, bowerbirds, tanagers and kingfishers.

I saw a Chiffchaff feeding yesterday, but it's likely to have been one that over-wintered here. Also heard a Song Thrush. There was a bit of birdsong as I left the house at first light to go to work...

I have quite a lot (they fill an entire bookcase) but nowhere near 399. In addition to field guides, I've got birders' biographies and autobiographies.

I keep looking at this lens and the reviews and thinking maybe I'll get it then thinking no I won't bother. Sumeet Moghe's review makes it even more tempting to succumb and get one.

When I first got my 400mm f/5.6, I also spent 50 on a filter. The results with the filter on the lens were terrible, so I took the filter off. Waste of 50.
