Right - Left - Middle
IMHO going for the middle bird 2nd has a greater potential for problems:
1) my dogs tend to "push off" previous birds/guns 2) in trying to select they might tend to take too much water if I try for the middle and 3) the left bird is still their head. These 3 factors would probably cause them to end up splitting the distance between the left and middle, ending up in "nowhere land". By going left 2nd the wind can help if they drift left on #2 as they exit the water.
Finally with the boundaries to the right and left are now set and picking up the middle bird becomes straight forward. just aim between those 2 trees
