2-7 birds a night is way better than I've been doing. It's getting tough to find more than 2 during weeknights. I'm in Atlanta too but live in Westside and have to drive to get catch my Birds.
Hopefully I’m not creating too much competition here but my advice would be to not wait until 9pm to try to capture birds. I get a bunch between 3pm and 6pm or so that just drop below 15% and become marked for charging. This happens throughout the day, but 3-6 in particular seems to be a real sweet spot.
I just open the app up sporadically and if I see a fresh bird pop up within walking distance for me, I head over. I’m also out walking around often anyway for fitness.
Most of the time I get all of my birds well before 9pm. This also means that most of my birds are near zero when I find them, so there’s that trade off too ;p.
Another technique is to find a bird on the rider map and head there shortly before 9. If you can get more than one near each other, even better. I’d only do this minutes before 9. “Guarding” a bird you can’t actually capture yet for any significant period of time is pretty obnoxious, imo.
