Steve Ollice bird photography video 2015

Here is a video of some of my best bird photos. While some photos were taken in various locations in the eastern part of the country, most were captured in my backyard. I’ve found that attracting birds is much easier than chasing them with a big lens. My set up is a nice bird feeder, close to a window or a door. I like to take photos from an open door because sometimes you can get reflections through a window. I have a patio table with a hole in the middle for an umbrella. I placed a somewhat attractive, leafless tree branch into the hole, and keep the table close to the feeder. The longer you leave this set-up, the better. The birds become confident with a perch that is close to the feeder, and you may get more birds as a result.
