    I don't have much experience photographing birds as I don't know where to look for them except in Jurong Bird Park which I think is a good place to practise.

    This sunbird is taken just outside my garden. Pana G1 with the 45-200mm at 400mm.


    At Jurong Bird Park. I did not use tripod. Hand held or finding something to rest my arms.
    GH1 with Pana 100-300mm at 300mm at 16:9 aspect.


    GH1 with 100-300 at 300mm.

    Nice bird shots from the park, maybe next time can try shooting in the wild, there are more than 300 species here in various part of the country

    List of birds of Singapore - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You may find it more rewarding making photos of birds in their natural habitat

    Thanks, motionstills, for comments and link. You are very good at birdie shots and macro shots which I am very hopeless. Hope to meet you guys to learn more.

    Any advice will be appreciated.
    200 on m43 shld be quite ok for large birds. Small birds is still possible but have to work on your movement. For Full Frame, I also use 400mm, main thing is that you need to nail the focus then can crop. Best birding shots are done close so that feather details are better

    Nice shots from JBP. Can try birding in Pasir Ris Park or Botanic Garden, part nearest to Mrt that has a pond. Sungei Buloh is some times too big and tiring. Group outing will be a good idea but birding sometimes about luck, can be whole day no bird to shoot

    Thanks, Wang TH, for the info. Agree that bird photography needs luck besides skill. Need a lot of patience too. Sometimes you have to hold the camera to focus and frame for more than a minute just to wait for the bird to turn its head. That's why m4/3 is better for its lighter weight. My friend went with a Canon 7D with a very heavy 300mm f4 lens that needed a monopod.

    Thanks, good suggestion, but seems like only a handful of people birding with M43/43, it's good that Wang TH started this thread to keep more people aware of the capability of M43 in long range shooting.

    BTW you've got the most beautiful night heron I've ever seen bro, feel like kissing it . thanks for sharing.

    Bro, you were already showing your skills with m43 birding, I just made it easier to find. I noticed that on other forums where there is theme threads, birding is usually quite popular.

    I also saw some awesome birding shots in Clubsnap and other sites with m43. It will be a great choice for overseas birding!
