Black Phoebe (Sayornis nigricans), bird in the Morro Creek outflow

Black Phoebe (Sayornis nigricans), bird in the Morro Creek outflow to Morro Strand State Beach, Morro Bay, CA., 17 Dec. 2008. Photo by Michael "Mike" L. Baird bairdphotos.com Canon 1D Mark III w/ 300mm f/2.8 IS lens with 1.4X II tele-extension, circular polarizer, handheld.

I was, by mistake, on Aperture Priority here at f/13, giving me a longer than desired 1/40th handheld shot - several others I took during the same burst were blurrier.

Thanks to Jerry Kirkhart and Linda Tanner for the identification correction to Black Phoebe (Sayornis nigricans) !
