comment Nikon D3300 - Trouble Focusing on Birds both Stationary & Moving
meant to add this in -- if the bird is in foliage, standard AF will fail more often than not. You want to learn how to switch onto spot AF and set the spot to the appropriate point (often not the center of the screen) to minimize this problem -- but branches have a great ability to find a way to convince AF to focus on them.... sometimes only manual focus will get the job done.
