Learning to play with birds

I'm experimenting with Nikkor AF-S VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED and what could be better than trying this telephoto zoom lens on bird photography? This lens in my hand and my hand in bird photography - both are new to me. Very clearly I realized that this is the field of photography where I need most sincere patience to capture quality.

I did not tried though that seriously, I did not went outside for my so far venture in this area. All the snaps I captured either through my window or from rooftop of my room; need to get rid of this laziness soon.

These are what I achieved so far, hope to learn more and more in coming days.
