Thanks Cheri's Sweetshoppe for the comment. That is exactly my problem. I was sitting outside today waiting for my kids to get off the bus. Decided to bring the camera (Nikon D40) out with me. I sat there for about 45 minutes...and nothing. As soon as I take the camera inside minutes before they were suppose to get off the bus...there they are. Three of them sitting in the spot I was watching just a minute before. I did get a very cool "Simpsons" like picture of the sky.
Still working on the stubborn birds though. Now its the weekend so might just take the kids out. I hear its suppose to be nice. Hopefully I will come back with nice pictures of the birdies.

When I walk out the front door of my apartment it leads to an alley. Across the alley is where my fiance parks his car. His car sits in what used to be grassy area that has now turned into patches of grass with dirt. There is an area that birds love to sit and play. Have you ever seen a bird in a bird bath how it flops around. Well these birds like to do this in the dirt and I think it is very cute. Every time a bird shows up there I never have a camera. My mission is to get a picture of a bird or birds doing this. I think it would make for a very good picture.
