Wondrous Nature

An amazing and wondrous sight very early this frosty Friday. In mind-boggling numbers, the sky was filled with grackles and blackbirds as far as the eye could see. This vast cloud went on and on and on for ten minutes at least.

The sound of millions of wings defies description.

It was an honor to witness such a gift of Nature.

Blackbird flock, similar to what I saw this morning

Oh my. Wow. I think it is amazing. My husband would be under the couch, thinking his childhood fear had come to get him....the birds.
This truly is an awesome sight. Have a good weekend, Oma Linda BB

It's pretty cool down here as well. Couldn't help myself. Called in to work and went right back under the covers.
