ABSTRACT
The article discusses various techniques in enhancing photo opportunities for the songbirds in the U.S. One important technique is to provide the birds a feeder, nest boxes, or landscaping with native shrubs and trees that provide food and cover. Moreover, using a higher ISO settings which has a range of 200 or 400 is essential to freeze the rapid movements of small birds.
