On the shooting format - it largely depends on my mood. I sometime use RAW and sometimes JPEG. Largely due to the fact that we dont have any good software in which you can browse raw pics and this makes selecting the ones that you want to keep quite time consuming.

Also, to me RAW does not offer any significant advantages as i dont know how to twaek the pics in PS. I largely only manipulate contrast/brightness and this can be done also with JPEG

I always use the highest quality available when shooting JPEG which in my camera is "L" so dont know about crop differences.
L, M, S means large small medium pixels. (lets say L = 12 MP, M = 9 MP, S = 6 MP)
However, what I was talking about is the JPEG quality. Super fine, fine, normal.
Try it for once (I am sure there will this setting tucked somewhere). And check if there is indeed any difference in the crops.

By the way, the super fine files will be considerably larger than the fine, and the fine will be considerably larger than the normal.

Oh yes - now that you mention, i remember that i can get different modes for L as well and i shoot with the superfine mode.

Will try out fine and normal as well the next time i go on a photo shoot and will check on the crops.

some new pics from my visits to Sultanpur in 2012. Sultanpur being so close to my place is a very accessible bird sanctuary and with the government taking more interest in the upkeep of the sanctuaries, birds have started to come to Sultanpur again, though most of these birds are either resident or local migratory - but during migration season, one does get to see a lot of migratory birds.

Hopefully - in coming years, we will also start seeing the likes of Pelicans, etc again.

Glossy or black Ibis - characterised by their curved bills.

Nice set of pics Sachin. The one you have marked as Green shank appears to a wood sandpiper to me. The lore, the supercellium and the dark stripes suggest its a wood sandpiper. We can wait for experts to confirm though.

But we have seen very little birding activity on tBHP. I went to Sultanpur and adjoining areas last week after a loong time, and following are some pics from the outing...
