Bird brains

I'm in the red room getting some sun. There are more than a hundred small black birds outside eating something out of the ground. Every minute or so they all take flight and a thunderous noise is made. Then they land again. Luna is totally overwhelmed.

I'm easily amused.

Agh... I should be doing this. But thus my laptop is currently a desktop!

I'm wondering if those birds are in migration as I've seen them by the hundreds in various places over the past week.

They were crowding the trees above the parking lot at Ian's apartment on Monday night (and crapped all over my car to boot!).

I saw them again on Friday afternoon on the median. I'd just stopped at a red light and they landed, pecking at the ground, then took off in one fell swoop as traffic began moving again.

They were in our backyard earlier this afternoon which set off both Velcro and Velvet who stood with wet noses to the patio door, chirping and thrashing their tails.
