Hi Ruth, I've always felt that the toughest but most important aspect of bird photography is that of getting close to your "quarry".  Whether, by using bait or a water drip to attract birds, or a hide or just by using field skills to stalk closer using available cover.  I'd like more zoom (wouldn't we all!) but you get a trade off with camera shake, atmosheric shimmer etc.  Ideally you'd use a tripod with a converter on the FZ200 but my birding is too mobile to allow this, so I tend to use the "stalking" approach.

Cheers   David

Sounds like your way is more fun if you don't mind muddy boots!
