Long-Tailed Duck banking by gregster09 Long-Tailed Duck banking by gregster09
These guys are very fast fliers, and in my opinion look a bit funny when flying. For me, this is a winter duck that will be leaving soon.

Awesome. How do you support your 600mm for birds in flight?

Generally on a tripod actually, though I will go handheld sometimes. With practice you can whip the rig around quite quickly even on a tripod.

What kind of tripod head do you use if you don't mind me asking?

They're beautiful birds, only seen one in the wild so far and they'll be leaving here too soon :(
