Birds...Birds...Birds!

I was cleaning the living room and glanced out the window...I ran and grabbed my camera and yelled for the babies to look out the window...
I slowly walked out the door...off the porch...

and down the sidewalk.

They hardly noticed me until...

my inner "pup" took over and I had to run right through the middle of them!


They didn't go too far. These photos only show about half of them! It was amazing to watch them fly together. It looked alot like the "cartoon version" of a swarm of bees. They all turned and moved together. Amazing!

The first thing I thought of was that movie! A bit Creepy.....but very interesting to see.

The photos are amazing!! How cool to see all of them in a large group like that. We have ravens here and sometimes they will gather up and fly around in huge groups, soaring on the wind currents for hours.

My immediate first thought was that horror movie, Birds... or whatever it's called. After that, birds kinda freak me out. lol especially when there's THAT many. lol Nice.

WOW, can't imagine seeing THAT many birds in my yard! I do watch the ones that fly on my patio to eat the left over dog food, but I don't think I've ever seen that many come at once...I would FREAK out if that happened! And then of course grab the camera...and then MY inner pup would take over!!! ...HYSTERICAL!

Wow! one summer the field behind our house was full of black birds! There were hundreds of them! It was weird. They overtook our yard etc and bird poop was everywhere for 2 days. Then they flew off somewhere else to invade
