over the past couple weeks, there have been massive flocks of black birds in my locale. today, they descended upon my back yard. hundreds and hundreds of birds would, as a group, go from the trees to the ground and back up to the trees. freaky. i caught them while they were down here. my camera doesn't show it, but they wrapped around my deck and into the yard on the left as well.
then i caught a bit of the exodus. it's crazy how they all get the message at the same time to move up or down. they coated the fence tops and tree branches after this photo. reminds me of the alfred hitchcock's "the birds".
