Bird AI for Perched Birds

Yesterday I went out to Hendrie Valley for 2 hours to test the E-M1X’s Bird Detection AI function, capturing photographs of small, perched birds. I returned home in a state of stunned amazement. I have never captured so many usable images of small birds, so easily, so confidently, and so quickly in my life.
