A flock of starlings is called a murmuration. You may have seen examples on the internet of some incredible scenes of thousands of birds flying together. Mine is not that glorious, but it is the largest I have seen out here so far. Hopefully more will occur AND I'll be here with a camera!
The house finches are another story - here they are all huddled on the deck in the colder weather.
The light and shadows are fantastic this time of year!
