Love this thread
Awaiting delivery of my Sigma 150-600  ;)

I'm sure you'll enjoy it, Tom.

My wife actually "bought" me one some years ago for my Xmas/birthday. It is still firmly attached to her camera

Not an expert, but I think these are (1) malachite kingfisher, (2) black-headed oriole, and (3) Egyptian goose.
