Early AM they leave the roost area, and head to feed
Late AM they gravel up, and head for water, then roost some more
Late afternoon head back to feed
Evening more water, and back to roost
If you can pin down whatever is in least supply you will find the birds more concentrated. Where I hunt we are surrounded by three sections of milo and sunflowers so food does not concentrate them. Roost trees and water are scarce so we hunt there.
A good scouting technique is to drive around at mid day, and look for birds sitting on power lines. That will help determine what food source they are using.
