I tried all day to take a photo of one of the many, noisy, birds around my house today.
First I tried taking a photo in the front yard, where they tend to congregate. But every single time I opened the door they all flew away. I tried just sitting outside, but every time I got close enough, a car would go by or a dog would bark and they were gone again.
Then I attempted to lure them from the front yard to the back yard. I was unsuccessful. But while waiting I decided that the lure itself wasn't a half bad shot and gave up. I've been watching from inside for a few hours now and still nothing.
Maybe it will just take time and I will catch one of them on an early morning. I can hope.
