There is such an island in New York - Governors Island. Relatively recently, it was opened to everyone, an army stationed there previously.
In May, the island was opened after a six-month winter break. The cruise from the tip of Manhattan takes 10 minutes.
Several birds from the tour (saw many birdwatchers with binoculars)

#1 Eastern kingbird (My first observation of this species)


#2 Eastern kingbird


#3 Killdeer


#4 Grey catbird

Ok, one shot of the Eurasian Blackcap.
I'm not satisfied with the results. Looks a bit grainy (korrelig).

While drinking our morning coffee, my wife tells me "look at this weird pigeon in our yard. It looks like a rat..."
Well, it is not a pigeon and not a rat... It is a corn crake.

The first two photos are from the early morning when the light was not very good:


Sony ILCE-7RM4 + Sony FE 200600mm F5.66.3 G OSS (SEL200600G) | 600.0 mm | f/6.3 | 1/200 sec | ISO 1600


Sony ILCE-7RM4 + Sony FE 200600mm F5.66.3 G OSS (SEL200600G) | 600.0 mm | f/6.3 | 1/200 sec | ISO 1600

But it stays with us, so 1.5 hours later the light was a bit better


Sony ILCE-7RM4 + Sony FE 200600mm F5.66.3 G OSS (SEL200600G) | 600.0 mm | f/6.3 | 1/400 sec | ISO 800

Here is a crop from the picture above:

Sony ILCE-7RM4 + Sony FE 200600mm F5.66.3 G OSS (SEL200600G) | 600.0 mm | f/6.3 | 1/400 sec | ISO 800

Generally, it is a very shy bird, and whenever it notices me, it hides:

Shay, I envy you now! Corn crake is one of those birds you can fairly easily hear, but actually seeing one is quite hard task.

That's a really long reach Heikki!
Did you capture this hand-held?

Occasionally, I have also thought about getting 2 TC, although that might be better suited to be used with FE 2.8/400 GM OSS and FE 4/600 GM OSS.

I may have placed the lens on a fence post that time, but the ring ouzel photo on the previous page of this thread was taken with similar configuration and without any kind of extra support despite that I had a tripod with me, although I used it exclusively for a spotting scope. Using this camera+lens+teleconverter combo hand-held is not that hard, at least if you don't have to hold the lens up all the time.
