Christmas was a blast and I will dedicate a whole post to it shortly, but I have been trying to get these pictures for a while, and today I accomplished my mission.

Photos of the week:

I have been watching the birds a lot lately. Hitchcock would be proud. I orginally wanted to catch them on a wire. (See above) But I also love how they become the leaves for dead winter trees.

And I especially love to see them fly together in seamless harmony. They are like one well-oiled machine doing intricate aerial maneuvers.

Why do they gather on those wires? Are they warm with electrical current running through them?

You want to see an assembly of birds - take a look at our WalMart parking lot in the very early morning or the early evening when the Crows gather. There must be hundreds of thousands of them. Every once in a while (if I'm there at the right time) I'll throw out a few potato chips or similar delicacy, and watch them flock to gobble it up (always making sure they don't get too close to me. Crows aren't very trusting).
