Camera Critters #32




It's time for Camera Critters again. Misty Dawn host
s this meme for us every week. Thank you very much, Misty. We all enjoy it very much.


Last week I had just posted my Camera Critters, and was wondering what I might do this week. As I was leaving the parking lot of my bank, I heard quite a racket going on. I looked up, and found the trees along the road were suddenly filled with birds. I guess we've all seen - and heard - this phenomenon at this time of year, but I always find it fascinating. So, here are my critters for this week.





There have been flocks of birds around my home as well. Here are photos I took of a house on the other side of the street from my house.

What a fun meme this is! Love all the pics but the last two are quite special. Like a scene from The Birds!

The Birds! That movie really was scary to me! That's what I thought of looking at the photos swarming your house! Were you boarding up the windows?

Hello! It did look and sound like "The Birds". A movie I quite enjoy. Just like I enjoy these pictures. Lisa

Wow … that’s a lot of birds!!! Wonderful pictures today. I'm wondering if this is a common phenomenon where you live?

Those last two definitely remind me of Hitchcock's The Birds!
Great shots!!!

Misty DawnS said...

Ah yes - a very familiar sight. They certainly do cause a racket, don't they? Those two shots of the birds in front of the house are awesome!

Bobbie, I think Alfred Hitchcock would be proud of you! The last photo looks like a scene from The Birds. Spooky!

What a of of birds!!! Blackbirds? Grackles? It looks like spring, but there no question there for winter is on its way; but, "if winter comes, can spring be far behind?" I think it was Shelly who wrote that.

EG CameraGirl said...

Holy moly!The birds are flocking together. ;-)

Jeanne said...

Whow very Hitchcock. Excellent shots! We've been seeing lots of flocks of various birds around here. Must be getting ready to head to warmer climates.

I love the energy that a huge flock of birds provides. They always arouse and raise my Spirit.

Tootie said...

Wow, you sure have LOTS of birds. :-)

Oh, Bobbie, I love this phenomenon too! Right now we have starlings fueling up for their journey and I can never get enough of their graceful 'swirlings'.
[p.s. Shame on the hatemongers in our country! I'm upset about the Obama threats. Sigh...thanks for listening.]
