Nikon D850 Chasing the TINY Double-barred Finch

In this video I give chase to the illusive little double-barred finch with my Nikon D850. These guys move so fast only stopping very briefly to chat to one another or have a bit of a scratch or prune of their feathers. They hide and feed in dense foliage of long grass, weeds and bush scrub. Patience is the key and you have to wait for them to come to you after placing yourself in their habitat. I team the D850 together with my Nikon 80-400mm lens, a versatile lens for moving quickly and lightly. It took some time for this video to eventuate because I really thought I wasn’t going to get any shots. See what happens…
