I've been venturing out to Lake Erie at times this fall and winter season mainly for the gulls and other birds to be found there. One of the reasons I went searching for them is because they are usually flying around and don't mind coming in close and I was after action shots as opposed to perching birds. Not only is it enjoyable to photograph birds in action action but they offer good practice for keeping the subject in the viewfinder during fast, erratic action which comes in useful for wildlife photography in general. And then there's the hovering, fishing, and synchronized flying, all of which make for nice action photos. Also, I find birds to be very photogenic in general.
