Took a screen shot from the video. They circled me five times before leaving.View attachment 72879
Always worries me when I start to see birds now. What makes it worse is when my spotter shouts out “birds”.... scares the crap out of me with her loud voice😳😳😳

Well, we hear you should ascend when birds come around. I could see that for hawks, but in this case they circled over under and around me so I just stayed still. They can fly better than we can.
