Grackles/ Camera Critters

Ever feel like you're part of an Alfred Hitchcock movie? Recently a flock of grackles touched down for a few minutes and then...

flew away. I just barely had time to grab my camera.

Yep, I have that feeling in the fall when I see these huge flocks of birds. You did a good job capturing the feeling.

Aren't these the same birds that Knoxville Girl did a photo on a while back? Definately reminds me of The Birds, a classic!

My goodness, I hope you weren't standing beneath all these birds while photographing them.

Grackles. One of my favorite birds. Not because they squawk but because they are such excellent parents. Lovely to see a flock this large.

Wonderful grackle capture--both photos are keepers! They're one of my faves and I love it when they come back this time of year to fill up before flying south.
Nice work!
