in addition to what ryncam said..... i know people who will say something out loud like: "hey you!" to get the birds out of strut. you could also try making slightly noticeable movements... maybe like moving your hand. just a couple of ideas. good luck!

Whistle works for me when a putt doesn't. But at 30 steps if your gun is shooting good and tight it shouldn't matter if he is broadside to you.
