I could think so,if I make a small movement,they are gone
Yep, it's amazing how the slightest movement will shoo them away. I made a blind out of an old sheet hung in the porch door with a hole cut out for my camera or just lens to poke through. Works wonders.

I've not found birds to be upset by flash in particular ... I had expected them to be.

Everything else ... human clearly stalking them, sounds and movement ... sure.
