Sometimes making more noise is the key.

Here is a photo of 3 gobblers that walked up to me while I was making lots of noise and moving around while digging 2 post holes and fitting/hanging two 12 foot metal gates:

This photo is on the road outside where I placed the above gates, on Thanksgiving Day, 2003:

Often when I am plowing a field, Swainson's hawks will sit on the ground around any isolated stands of grass/weeds. As I continue and the piece gets smaller, cottontails, jacks, rats and mice will come running out and run the gauntlet. Even red-tailed hawks which are very leery of humans will sit in brush, trees or posts close to where I am working.
