Today when I was returning to work from lunch, I became aware of a large flock of squawking birds who were particularly active in the trees behind the parking lot. And then as I was walking towards the building, I became aware of a darkness in the sky from my peripheral vision. I looked up and was absolutely stunned. There were hundreds upon hundreds (if not thousands) of small dark colored birds moving silently across the sky. I don’t what types of birds they were, but I’m guessing they were migrating somewhere. I quickly out my phone and grabbed this shot, knowing that it would be very hard to make out any detail in the final image. But just consider that every single black dot you see in the sky here is a bird, and this is just one small slice of view of the entire flock. It really was quite an impressive sight.
