Post Newbie bird person

Greeting to All!

I live on the peninsula in the Bay Area of California. I like birds and to take pictures of them nearby. It helps me identify and remember them as I am somewhat new about birds and bird photography. I use an Olympus OMD EM1 Mark II with 600mm F4 lens and with a 1.4X extender. To fully use the features of the OMD EM1 for BIF my experience has been that the learning curve requires nontrivial commitment.

My wife and I have a KOWA TSN-884 spotting scope with the 25 to 60X eyepiece. I hope to use the camera with this scope eventually.

Andre

Hi Andre and a warm welcome from me too.

I'm sure you will enjoy it here. I hope to hear about all the birds you see when out and about and will hopefully see some of your pictures in the Gallery too.
