Ten tips for photographing birds:

  • Most important: respect ethic code about bird observation (birding ethics).
  • Best times for taking pictures: early morning or late afternoon. Try don't take pictures facing the Sun
  • Use a telephoto lens of at least 300mm
  • Use a stable tripod
  • To find the best sites: look on the net or contact a bird watching club
  • Be discreet: wear camouflage, stay hidden, remain silent and respect the birds
  • Bring binoculars to find birds more easily
  • Bring a bird guide book to identify birds you see
  • Listen (learn to recognize the different songs)
  • Be very patient...
