There are price winning bird photographers here at DT with real masterpiece pics.
One of my favorite is:

But how to make photos of birds when you neither have the equipment (an extra big zoom or tele) nor the knowledge?

The answer is quite simple: Start with the big birds!

My biggest one is:

By the way: This pic is the joke part of my blog ... (:-

Lets look to real birds:

For that ostrich portrait I used my 50mm glas with an additional closeup lens nearly breaking the boundary fence when I bend forward to get closer. Fortunately the farmer didn't see me.

The next criteria is: Pure luck!

I had this luck on a boat trip near Istanbul, Turkey. Some seagulls were flying around the ship....
