Thread: Kingfishers are soooooo shy!

    Default Kingfishers are soooooo shy!

    He won't allow me to go 10 meters close to him, everytime I get close, he flies to
    opposite of the pond. After chasing three times, I gave up.

    Birds are like that. It is not because they are shy, but mainly because of their instincts. They think you are going to hammer them with your birding mama.

    Just to share, there was one bird (not kingfisher or crow or pigeon) that allowed me to shoot about less than a metre away from it. And it was happily preening (is that how you spell it?) itself. Really. It was a bird the size of a sparrow and I could get a close up of it using (not) my 300mm.

    Squirrels are much more cooperative, but they don't make good subject and
    always hide in trees. I saw tens of them in Tiger Bam resort last time.

    It must be sunbird. I also saw a number of them in the garden behind my office, pecking
    among flowers and allow me walk really close to it, but not able to take cameras during
    work time.
