Wake up all folks 1/3

By Raku  
The local alarm clock will sound 7:11 AM.
It lives in a quiet neighborhood, so some people wake up.

Hello again. Obviously taken at the same time as the two previous uploads. The settings are the same, some Exif is showing up slightly differently each time but I suspect that that may be an error in the site's reading of the data.

Again, this is good but could have been better with a bit more control over settings.

This one really supports what I said on yesterday's: you didn't need to use the full extent of your zoom, a bit more space would be good and would avoid clipping the ends of the wings.

And 1/250 second wasn't really fast enough to hold that focal length steadily. In this case, it looks as though 1/500, even 1/1000 second, (with higher ISO), would still have given very satisfying motion blur in those wings.

Plus my question yesterday:

Quote:Using auto focus what do you see? Is the camera allowing you to focus on one precise point or is it showing a pattern of a number of points? I suspect the latter... You do need to use a single point.

Comments as before. This time the wings are too far gone and are just stripes with little identification.

A bolder crfop and the building in the background isn't at a crokked angle but the same feedback applies that was provided in your last two uploads.

From your description this bird makes a regular appearance so the thing to do now is get back in position taking into account the advice given and post your results.

As Keith says - apply what we've written, and see if it improves your results.
