I guess that it would be a "short walk" for the heron LOL.
Mirror lenses are fun to use, and can get the "reach" without being big and clumsy to use. I have noticed though, that they are not as sharp in detail when you look at the images at 100% crop. The "different" bokeh and the fixed aperture make it a thinking process to get good photos with them, as you have to consider what's behind the subject, and if there is enough light to shoot without motion blur. They do allow you to capture many scenes that would not be possible though, without spending a ton of money and having a huge lens to lug around. Looking through some of the images you have posted in this S C, I can tell that the lens that you are using has better resolution than the older ones that I have and use. That may be partly because the 7D is a full frame camera too.

Such majestic birds, standing or sitting still is an art.
