I love your birds Jim. What are the circumstances that allow you to get so close?
Even my citi-fied birds only give me 50m at best.

Took me a long tiome to figure them out. First, believe it or not the car is one great blind if you know where they are. It took about 10 minutes [slow] to get close enough. If they are looking for food they almost ignore me. I also have a blind that works really well. JIM

Patience. If the Heron flies away once, your done so you might as while move on the the next one. JIM
