First, a little background. Today was my very first bird photo outing. I am completely ignorant to genus, species, etc. I primarily shoot portraits and landscapes then I picked up my first semi-telephoto lens (a 300 2.8, which I coupled with the tc20) about 2 weeks ago and decided to try the wildlife thing out. I asked my wife for a little time to myself for some shooting. She gave me 1.5 hours
While stalking aimlessly through the trail, I ran into a very excited lady. She was snapping away with her cell phone at the reeds. I asked her what she was doing and I'm assuming she was very thorough in explaining it to me... in Japanese. After some confused looks from me, I guess she got flustered and resorted to googling an image of what she was looking at. After some squinting at the reeds, I finally spotted the object of her attention. Refer to the images below.
