Patience rewarded

One of the best methods for observing (and photographing) birds is to just ‘sit and wait’.

This method works well if you spend a little time patiently observing the behaviour of birds and their patterns of movement at a specific location. The same perches and paths will be often be used by different species of birds as they go about their business – try this and you’ll be rewarded with some nice views. The following series of photographs were all captured over an hour or so as I was set up to photograph Rainbow Bee-eaters.
