Dave, Thanks for the tip. I read about one guy that had a feeder and the birds flew from a nearby tree to the feeder and back...so he set up a multi flash setup and motion trigger along the flight path and he had some terrific pictures taken from his camera on the tripod. Can't remember where i saw it though. He also had a wide shot of the whole setup and it was only about 15 feet wide and 10 feet from his back door!!
