Blog Post #7777

This morning I looked out and there was a huge flock of birds in a tree. I picked up a camera and opened the back door. Of course they flew off but first some flew back and forth. I couldn't tell if they were starlings or blackbirds.

Let's look at a couple of dogs

This image of a dog in Shenandoah National Park is from my files. Don't worry, his people were next to me and he obeyed when they invited him to get in the car. 


  1. Hello,
    I've been seeing huge flocks of blackbirds, they could be a mix of starlings and grackles. The dog at Shenandoah is cute and well behaved. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Sunday, have a great day and week ahead. PS, thanks for leaving me a comment.
