I would add a way I use, I don't move straight in direction to the subject but on a diagonal way so that the bird (who is often very aware of our presence) may think that we just plan to pass by but are not interested in him.

Thanks for the comments everyone!
Good tip, Physi28!
It can also help to get some obstruction between you and your subject: a log, brush, anything that will cover your movement.
