Blogging about Birds. Living the Hitchcock movie this morning!
Monday, December 28, 2015
First there was a small chirp and the skritch of bird claws sliding down my skylight.
Then I heard the chirps turn into a multitude of doors needing oil.
The skritch turned into a herd of bison running across my roof.
I looked out.
I live in the "blackbird belt" and we frequently have darkened skies and trees seemingly covered in black leaves when they travel.
Today they stayed about 5 seconds longer than normal. How do they get anything to eat in such a short amount of time? They looked like an army of ants without a leader.
And in a half a breath,,,they were gone!
