Birds of the Airport Salt Pond

I’ve been having quite a bit of difficulty getting good photos of birds, so I headed out to the salt pond near the Grand Case airport to get some practice. I’ve been using Nikon’s cheap 70-300mm zoom, and no matter what I try for aperture and shutter speed, I am still not getting very sharp images, particularly at 300mm, particularly if I need to crop afterwards, even using my monopod. To a certain degree, I suppose this is to be expected, although it is quite frustrating, especially when I can generally get nice photos easily when shooting macro. Darn birds!
