I'm going to post a non-sony and a how-to for the new bierders/BIF'ers (Gene/Travis) here.
It is really really helpful to have you and someone else working together.
We spotted this Black Chested Eagle down the road.
I get Poof to drop me off.
She drives past the eagle. If we stop near him he flies and no shot usually and if so its a butt shot.
After getting well past him she stops the car and begins walking toward him, and in essence to me who is
crouched down in the weeds by a fenceline 180 away from her.
Soon as she crosses his 'barrier' he flies.
Often they will fly opposite the one walking to them, so I try to get opposite where she is.
It has worked time and time again for us.IMAGE LINK: https://flic.kr/p/rEHkiM What a birder lives for I suppose

I wondered if you could do that...and I wondered if they would fly away from the moving one...I have a lot to learn about the BIF part...those were more misses than hits, but I managed to snag a few. I will keep that in mind next time...these water birds were in the shallows right next to the trail...anything came near they took flight.
This Egret did battle with his dinner for a while...so long so, that I got bored and kept walking, this snake put up a hell of a fight...I liked the defense mechanism of wrapping himself around the beak of the Egret. It worked for a while, but the bird finally just started thrashing its head all over, I am guessing just to wear the snake out.
