Miles away, camera on full zoom and still it flew off!

Crafty birds

Jays and other members of the crow family do seem to be camera shy. They seem to know when you are watching them. I tried to photograph magpies with their nest near to where I live but every time I got my camera out it flew off.
They are extremely clever.

Jays seem to fly off as soon as they see you. Magpies and others seem slightly more approachable
