Hi Bruno,

Glad to see that you are making friends!  

For better lighting, have you thought about using a large sheet of aluminium foil with a hole cut in it for your lens - to bounce some light back at your feathered subjects.  The less shiny side might work better in giving a more diffuse light, and the birdies might not be spooked so much by their own reflections (something I have trouble with myself.....)
