Migration season is underway for shorebirds, and I had the opportunity to photograph this Short-billed Dowitcher from 20′ away using a Nikon 1 V1 camera attached to my Nikon 300/2.8 VRII and TC17EII via the FT1 adapter for an effective focal length of 1377 mm! The dowitcher was foraging the mudflat for tubifex worms and had to stretch before the worm would detach from its burrow beneath the surface.
