Agreed. I am learning. I just have one pic in captivity, all others are from open. Sometimes if I am free I take my time to learn these birds. Thanks for sharing the secret.

SatyenMehta, thank you very much for your appreciation and the kind words!The secret lies in the fact that I only photograph birds of wild animals, not in captivity and I spend a lot of time around them to understand their behavior... it is very important!:)
