I think 160. I don't think anyone can expect sharpness on a full crop with such a lens.

It was center at f9.

I have some artsy, what I would consider good, shots. I don't really see how I can do that at 400 feet with a 250mm though. Sure, those shots were awful, but it's not everyday that people get pictures of hawks.
Move to Vancouver
Red-tailed hawk and bald eagles are everywhere
During my summers on the sunshine coast, there was a man who, every day at 12, fed about 5-6 eagles with steaks. This man was retired, and the eagles were 1km + away, watching him, waiting for him to waive the steak and signal. It was amazing. When we were there, even though we were hidden inside, the eagles knew. This man just stood outside, and at precisely noon the eagles started coming 1 by 1, to have their steaks. In total I'd say there were about 6-7 and they all waited, with about 3-4 minutes in between.
