Marbled Godwit Revisited

September 27, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

I revisited the Marbled Godwit and obtained better photographs. The technique for approaching a bird is:

-walk obliquely towards the bird, not directly, and avoid eye contact;

-stop after a few steps and if the bird is not startled take some photos and move a few more paces, repeat;

-when the bird or guard birds become alarmed they will stand up and look at you so stop;

-take photos, wait and move again a few paces obliquely towards the bird;

-if the bird starts walking then stop. Your as close as your going to get;

-if the bird or guard birds startle and fly you can turn in your birder/photographer credentials and find another hobby.
