When I woke up Tuesday March 17, 09.
My cat crash wanted out. I was surprised to find my front yard full of starlings. They must have followed me home from St. Louis. I quickly grabbed my camera. There were so many I had to put 3 photos together to show some what of a panoramic view. This is common to see in St. Louis. But not here in the lake area. I watched out of the hospital window on Feb 14, 1999 to see flock after flock 10000's of bird fly by a 4th story window. After that day I saw many of theses birds come and go in my yard. They filled up over an acre of trees at my old home. It kinda makes me wonder whats up with them. They are so many and yet Blue jays were so few. And crows disappeared. With Niles virus.
Here at the lake area they are making a come back.
Have a great weekend.
