I used a video recorder to get some shots of birds while in Denmark a
while back. It wasn't a high definition video recorder, and I found
that the results were irritatingly grainy and not a pleasure to see.
I'd much rather have a high megapixel DSLR. You can take dozens of
shots and while you don't end up with a movie that shows behaviour,
you'll end up with something that you'll be pleased with.
Having said that, though, the video did get me a Wryneck!
