Flurry of wings

Some bird's are more difficult to photograph than others, because they are seldom motionless.  However, to capture their image in flight can often take your breath away, and/or teach you something new about a bird species at the same time.

This can include flight capabilities, speed, and how the bird may be recognized in silhouette.

Capturing an image of a bird in flight is often also the best way to see details on it's tail and wings.

Even if the image turns out to be blurred, the bird's overall color pattern can sometimes help identify the species.
