My roomie and I (2 girls in our thirties.. baha) starting doing the Bird thing about a week ago. We're slowly learning some ins and outs and I've combed through You Tube & this page for as much info as possible.
Our main issue is: picking up birds after they release at 9pm. The other night we decided to just give er hell and threw 14 uncaptured ones in our vehicle around 8:45-9:00. We got them home and got about 7 scanned, and the rest said they were illegally captured.
1-I'm ok with being penalized. I understand this is not the correct way to do it. But- why did some scan and some not?
2-I'm committed to being successful at this and honest at the same time, so I need help! Tonight we drove around starting at 8:20 (we're in LA) and noted all the spots where they were sitting. We had a lot of time to kill until we could capture so we parked by a group of 4 on a corner. We waited until 9:03 and were able to capture these 4- but by the time we headed down the street (about 9:08), ALL of the ones we had previously saw were gone.
So- if you want to be legal here but also successful- HOW do you suggest getting a bunch of birds if you can't move them or scan them until 9?? PEOPLE BE GRABBING THESE MAN.
Haha. I'm open to all your suggestions!
Thank you! #awolinla
