These guys are funny. They are local residents. And are very predictable. When you find them they are always around the same place. No matter when you go. So very easy to shoot.
I have just started to list description and the habits of the birds on my flickr site. This is for my benefit. I photograph the birds, but do not know much about them. Once I read there habits it is a little easier for me to predict where and when to find them. And where to look for them.
Pretty interesting and a lot to learn. I can see how you could make a career out of this.
Here is another bird that spends most of it's time in the open ocean. Interesting, they come to the same place in Thailand each year for a few months. I am always amazed at the predictability of the birds. Here is another example of a bird that is easy to take. They spend so much time in the open ocean. When they come to shore for some reason it is easy to get close to them. Sometimes! A very small wader. With peculiar feeding habits. Fun to watch.
Birding is free..... head out and enjoy it.
