Hello friends, once again i did a heavy cropping
around 75% to have the bird closer on the image.
I was at 50mm (35mm eq:75mm) fully zoomed.

In Apeture mode, i choose F2.8 & ISO100 and the
camera choose 1/3200s shutter speed, i see that in
TN's database their is no 1/3200 so i put 1/3000.

from Hinterland Who's Who website

« The American Robin was originally a forest species,
but it has adapted well to residential areas, where it
feeds on lawns and nests in gardens and city parks.
As trees have been planted, it has invaded the prairies,
and it is often found in alpine forests and meadows
above the treeline, so that there is scarcely any type
of habitat, except marshes, where the American Robin
will not nest. It prefers to winter in open areas,
but does live in pinewoods and orange groves. »

Bonjour Asbed!
Maintenant tes oiseaux en vol sont vraiment nettes.Bravo! Belle photo! Merci de la partager!

HI Asbed,
again excellent sharpness on the object. Nice point of view. Very good sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

Bonjour Asbed,

Les arbres cadrent bien l'oiseau. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du Merle d'amérique en vol. L'oiseau est clair et précis. Le F2.8 de la lentille est un avantange pour la qualité de l'image. Bonne journée.

Hello Asbed,
Nice to see the dorsal view of this in-flight American Robin.
Despite the distance and heavy cropping it is well seen against the slightly OOF brushwood with fine details and sharpness.
Thanks and enjoy your Sunday,
