Know Your Subject
Both the words - bird and photography - are equally important aspects of this form of photography. To become a successful bird photographer it's critical to know your subject well. You need to observe the behaviour of birds, their habitat, resting and breeding patterns.
In case of migratory birds you should know their migration patterns and their preferred habitat. A good bird photographer can identify and predict location of birds just by listening to their calls.
