Film people: could you slow down this clip? I want to see if the bird's head or feet change position. Or is it a dead bird on a string?
Bird watcher people: does this look right? Or is it a taxidermibird?
Kinda scary, but not vertical by any means. Perhaps 45 degrees, judging by the presumably vertical tower, and water stains at the sides. Distance is a bit harder to guage, especially with that wide angle lens.
