I have seen the work that you fellow members of this forum have posted here and can't help but be impressed. I doubt that I could attempt to duplicate the work that I see here but as an observer, I have a question. Besides having great gear AND knowing how to use it, could you share what is involved in a successful Bird outing? Is there a lot of stalking? Do you use Hides to enable you to get closer? Please give me an idea of what it takes to do what you do.
