Measuring only 6-1/2 inches from the tip of its longish tail to the end of its bill, this bird usually forages on the grass for insects and invertebrates, stopping once in a while to survey its surroundings. To keep up with the active bird, I had set my 5D MIII's AF to AI servo and used settings similar to what I utilize for BIFs.
