Thanks a lot for those nice words.

Ok this bird was less excitable (had interacted with humans at some point of time in the past is my guess) and allowed very close approach but after a point did fly off.

What I have seen is slow and smooth progress does allow you to get significantly close. Some species are more skittish than others, but then with practice, you CAN get close enough and frankly you need to even if you have 5 or 6 hundred mm of glass. Loads of patience and mentally being ready to have many many misses are two things one could really find handy.
