Scratching around - example

I was walking along the street, when I got a bit fed up with all these birds at my feet, scratching around. Just then, an old man started throwing bread down for the birds. They caught sight of it and immediately flew over and surrounded him. I was happy to get rid of them and I went on my way quite happily.
