What gear do I use on a day to day basis when shooting:

Since my primary focus is on birds, long lenses are a must.  I will typically use my camera body, one of the two above lenses , my teleconverter (on the 600) and my Black Rapid Strap.  I handhold 90% of the time even for flight.  I find tripods and monopods to be cumbersome and restricting.  With the new mirrorless systems and lenses, handholding is the way to go...for me.
