I went to the small forest late in the morning and spent two hours to shoot birds.
One trick I learned about is to move slowly and be patient for having decent bird/animal shoots. Sitting one spot about five to ten minutes usually bring some birds in close range either at a park or middle of forest. Typical behavior of street cats is they stare at human for a while then if they feel safe, they keep watching from a distance.
Most birds maintain safe distance all the time except their feeding time or sitting on top of a tree or edges of a building. It’s easy to shoot big ass of a bird.
