Bird photography can be among the most rewarding and stunning photography that many of us will ever try. While it requires the patience of a saint, the resulting shots, in the right conditions will often make all of the pain worthwhile. While a lot of bird photography is done with specialist equipment such as telephoto lenses, it is also possible to take some reasonable shots without any special gear. These bird photos are collected from the good creative commons folks at Flickr.
