Nikon D850 | Photographing Sooty Oystercatchers

In this video I use my Nikon D850 + Nikon AF-S 200-500mm F5.6 lens to photograph Sooty Oystercatchers. These birds are truly amazing in the way they feed and unique colourings. This is the first time I’ve tried using the Nikon AF-S 200-500mm F5.6 lens on my D850 for bird photography as I experiment to find a new long telephoto lens for my Nikon cameras.

Nikon D850 – Sooty Oystercatchers are endemic to Australia. I was surprised to learn these birds are rare here in my part of the world. They’re even endangered in New South Wales in Australia. That’s such a shame.
