They're Back........



Flying and Fluttering...



Squaking...




Sittin'....



And flying some more.... The Common Grackle is back in the area.

When they all take off you can hear the wind beneath their wings....
(sorry...for that)

So many birds! My dogs would go NUTS.

And...Think.
That was just the birds in those trees. The other trees had that many as well.

They fly in unison (did I spell that right, it looks weird). And seem to think collectively.

OMG we had a couple thousand of those in our backyard! Fortunately because we have snow now they are gone. I have some videos with their defining noise.

Sandy said...

Yep. You spelled it correctly! I absolutely DETEST those birds!

Once a year we get the grackles like that. Thousands of them settle in the trees around us. And you are right...if you go outside and startle them, when they all take off their wing sounds are unbelievable.
