A few months ago, I built a little shelf on the railing outside my window and bought a 20 lb. bag of bird seed. I was hoping to attract the mourning doves that have been hanging around my building all summer so I could get some more photos of them.
Now, the action never stops. Aside from the random pigeons, I get a variety of other birds to watch while I work.
This has proven to be the most effective distraction from editing that I have come up with so far, as well as inexpensive!
