Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera
Use the telephoto lens.. wide angle will tend to distort the image and provide too much detail( distraction) around the object of interest. Bird pictures become more interesting when they are mainly of the bird. So when you look through the lens, zoom up to the bird to the point where you have it nicely framed with none of its parts outside of the frame.
Capture the whole image.
Wide angle lens is mainly used for scenery or where you want to take a group photo or panorama.
