It is occasionally possible to get away with shooting ground-dwelling birds from the “rolling bird hide” – namely when the bird is on a small knoll and the background thus a bit further back. I’m not saying one shouldn’t take pictures out the window of the car, just that in the editing it makes sense to be very picky about the images which are shown to fellow birders on Facebook, and the ones which are not.
