SkyWatch with Many Birds

swftomSky Watch Friday is a photo meme with photos of sunrises, sunsets, blue skies, gray skies, pink skies, dark skies, bird-filled skies and any other kind of sky posted by bloggers all over the planet.

Last week my son said he heard a bird making a strange noise. I went outside with my camera and found many birds (thanks to Michelle for identifying the birds as starlings) making noise.

These are fantastic shots. Looks like Central Bird station. By the way, I loved your comment on mine. I've read Good Night Moon many, many times when my daughter was growing up.

Super photographs, Leora!

Shabbat Shalom to you and yours.

Only a real master can take pictures of birds. Mine are never successful. The movement of the wings is hypnotizing!

Wow ... that IS a lot of birds! Wonderful shots you've captured and shared ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

How lovely! One of my greatest pleasures in life is watching birds. I have often thought that God smiled when He made them. He knew he would always have early morning praise:-)

ramblingwoods says

Lots of starlings or snarlings as I call them. You have a package coming from Barnes & Noble for you and your daughter....

Hi Leora...I lost track of you for a while it seems! I have added you to my blogroll so I can visit more often.

These bird photos are great...especially the one with them flying across the sky!
