I am injured and cannot walk too much, so take a drive and shoot from the car.
I noticed that if i get out from the car and try to go closer the birds spot me and fly away.
Somehow there are not frighten of the car.

Not necessarily 4x4 lar...any vehicle can also....even sedan car or vans...but of course 4x4/SUV helps a lot in traversing rough terrain...while the rest got to stick to tracks. A vehicle is an invaluable asset for birding in sg. You can get fairly close to the birds and not necessary to have a 600mm also. A 300mm w/ converters would suffice.
