How can an amateur photographer make good photographs of birds?

I have a Nikon d70 (and an n80) and several lenses, the longest of which zooms to 200mm. I have a remote for the d70 (and a cable-release for the n80). I have a mediocre tripod. My yard is filled with birds. What do I need to know to optimize my chance at great bird photos? Is it merely a matter of patience and luck? Does anyone here have experience with bird photography?

What happens to film when it ages?

A friend just gave me twenty-one rolls of 35mm film of various speeds and types. All of the rolls are old; most of them have "use by" dates of 1989 or 1991. What is the likely condition of this film? Can any generalizations be made? What happens to film when it ages? (I'm secretly hoping that the film is still useful, but that it'll create bizarre chromatic aberrations.)

Digital photography workflow on a Macintosh

I am a Macintosh user who has just acquired a Nikon D70 digital SLR. Most of my photography experience is with film-based equipment; I have no experience maintaining a collection of digital photos. The software bundled with the camera seems questionable, and iPhoto drives me nuts. What do other amateur (or professional) photographers use to manage their photographs? Will iPhoto do the job? What habits should I develop? What software should I use? Any tips or tricks to help ease me into the world of digital photography?

How do I remove moisture from inside camera lenses?

Recently somebody broke into my car, took my camera equipment, and dumped it in the bushes. The stuff sat there for nearly two weeks before we found it this morning. Everything's there (or seems to be), but I'm worried: all five lenses are cloudy. They seem to have collected moisture inside. How can one effectively remove moisture from inside a camera lens? Will time take care of it?
