Hi guys! I'm going on a work trip to Trinidad in the new year. I'm going to take my full rig for when I can actually go birding, but it won't be safe to have it on the work site. It's a bit sketchy there. There are going to be birds EVERYWHERE though, so I am wanting a camera that is small enough to be in a pouch on my belt, but that has the most reach. Mostly for ID, but hopefully that can give me decent quality. Any suggestions?

I have the Canon Sx-50 and my brother has the sx-60 and we are both very happy with them... you obviously you don't get the same quality as a dslr, but awesome for ID and can still get good shots.
The most I can get! It's going to be rough to be surrounded by birds and not have my 400. LOL. So I want the best I can get that fits in my pocket, so I can at least ID everything. I've forewarned my team that they can't stop me from pausing and taking a quick shot whenever I see something new. :lol:
