Challenge has finished
Any species of bird for which water is their primary habitat [ ie waterfowl, shorebirds, waders, gulls, pelicans etc ] at the moment of take off or landing, one or both feet ideally touching a surface be it ground, water, rock, nest, building, wood etc or at the most be clearly within inches of it to make it obvious a take off or landing was in progress, precision timing is key for this challenge. No feeding shots, just landing or taking off. To far from theme will mean a DQ.
