I am looking at another system for small birds in trees. It seems that on cloudy days and in the winter there is not enough light for the X-t3 to auto focus without setting the ISO so high the the images are poor.

I am waiting to see if there is a replacement for either the d500 or 7d mkii. I would like to test the a6400 and the 200-600mm from sony

Also I'd like to share with you some advices.
Bird photography, especially wild bird photography can be quite challenging. There are many articles on the Internet that cover everything from “bird photography tips” to “the art of bird photography”, but I found that many of them are not detailed enough and do not contain as much information for an amateur bird photographer. After several years of photographing birds, I decided to write this “How to photograph birds” guide and include everything I know about taking good pictures of birds, so in a way, it is an introduction to bird photography. Parts of this article also apply to birding or bird watching, so if you like birds and just want to be able to approach and watch them closely, read the Locating Birds and Approaching Birds sections below.

That's superb. Can you post the link to this article?
Birds and other wild animals are disappearing because we destroy their natural habitat. By far, the main reason of this destruction is animal agriculture; thus, the first essential step for all bird lovers: go vegan!
