Bird photography is as much about the bird as it is about light and background. To find birds in almost perfect situations like this is very rare. I was in a garden recently and saw someone with a large crate of camera gear setting up. When he set up he had a camera on one tripod, and a branch held by another tripod set up near a feeder. Sure enough a bird flew from the feeder to his branch. All he had to do was sit on his stool and wait for the birds to pay him a visit. Personally I think that takes the fun out of finding, tracking and shooting birds (and getting some exercise while doing it). However, it is a technique that works and it certainly has its advantages.
