Skywatch Friday-the birds

We haven't had much of a sky this week. The weather has not been very good. So, not so much a sky watch photo, as a photo of birds trying to get out of town before our latest cold spell. Ignore the reflection of the dash. I had to get this quickly from the car.

Very cool photo! I love when they all fly together like that.

Wow, there's about hundreds of them or maybe thousand. Better get your head covered, dont want any alien stuff drop on you...lol. Have a nice weekend, Jim.

Lots of action and the reflection just makes it better!

They're all flying south for the winter. You're pretty quick with your camera. I always get annoyed with myself when a good photo-op appears, but I'm driving.

Definitely a lot of birds!!!

J. Andrew Lockhart said...

Gosh there's a lot going on ..all those birds. It reminds me of "The Birds"

I lost count. Hitchock would be proud it's another fabulous catch.

Tanya said...

Isn't it amazing that they don't fly right into one another? I wonder if there ever is just one of those uncordinated birds that do?! That would be me,lol.

Hilda said...

Whoa! That's amazing!

I think it's obvious I've never seen such a huge flock of birds before. If I were a bird, I'd avoid Manila too. ;D

Happy Sky Watching!

Were you following them and trying to escape from the cold as well? ;-)

Regarding your comment on my blog - my 2 boys had a friend visiting that day...

Debbie said...

Great shot although it kind of creeps me out in the Hitchcock movie sort of way...

Small City Scenes said...

Birds in the sky---hey, there's a sky shot. LOL MB

Knoxville Girl said...

hope you were't driving a convertible. :)
happy SWF!

Now, that's a herd of birds! While I wouldn't want a huge flock flying around my head and body, I do enjoy seeing them.
Thanks for your visit to my SWF post. Yes, I think that ice/cold hit just about everyone in this area. It's over 60 degrees right now, but the high for Sunday is supposed to be only 28. Brrrr, Humbug!

That sure is a lot of birds. I've never seen anything like it. In the smaller version it actually looks more like a swarm of locust or bees.

imac said...

Ah its Hitchcocks film - the birds.
Great shot.

Wanda said...

Oh that is a cool sky...... I agree where is Alfred H.

JM said...

Wow! I've only seen this in Africa. Great shot!

Arija said...

Alfred Hitchcock eat yur heart out!
I love the greenish tinge in the clouds, fabulous.

Gaelyn said...

That's a great SW. We look up to see what we can see. And that's an amazing amount of birds to see all at once.
