This worked perfectly in Battlefield 2. Realistic and balanced solution in my opinion. I'd love to see this in Arma 3!

Moving carelessly near the birds could cause them to startle too.

Edit: Couldn't find a video that shows how good solution it was in BF2, but here's a video of the birds themselves:

This suggestion was processed by our team and will be looked into. We thank you for your feedback.

It would be nice if you could add flocks of birds flying up from trees when startled. I think this was a feature in the SLX mod.
