First Bird Photography Outing with the Sony A7r5 + 200-600mm

I got to take the new A7r5 out the other morning to a local beach for some bird photography. It was a pretty quiet morning so it's not the best bird photography you've ever seen, but if you're looking for some idea of the quality of the new camera these should help. I usually use the a1, but I have to say this camera performed perfectly. Didn't miss a shot and the auto focus was impeccable. 

All photos taken in Manual Exposure mode, lowest f-stop on the lens (f/6.3), varying shutter speeds and Auto ISO. 

(like all online photos, these are best enjoyed if you go full screen)

Excellent Matt. Just returned from 2 weeks in Monument Valley and just got my camera - can't wait to set it up and try it out!
