I remembered to take the camera this morning. The photos aren't that good being dawn but you'll get the idea. When we got to the field we waited. This is the tree....
We knew we hadn't missed them because we could hear the birds getting ready. We waited about five minutes and then it happened. A couple of birds came out of the tree and then the rest. Thousands of them. All at once.
It's so quick. They are out and gone in less than 30 seconds.
I wonder where they go all day? They come back around 5pm but in smaller groups, circling around several times before settling in the tree.
