(Avis Custodes is Latin for Bird Watchers.) Patient by nature, willing to traverse long stretches at uncommon times of the day. Frequently solitary, but also known to congregate. I would call myself one, minus the fancy gear and the lists. A good resource for identification is: The Cornell Bird Lab

Paul, on many of my former photo shoots I met bird watchers. They didn't tell me anything about their specialty because silence was required. Because of their equipment, I initially thought they were using large telephoto lenses but, on closer look, I found out that it were special binoculars. An interesting activity that requires a lot of patience, perseverance and knowledge.
Your photo visualizes this activity perfectly!
