The Flock

While we were waiting for the moon to come up, we had the mountains in front of us. They were especially beautiful and peaceful.


And then, hundreds of birds flew by. The line of them was so long that the end was not in sight. And they kept coming. They do this every night as they settle down to roost somewhere. And they must choose very safe beds, because I have never seen a sleeping bird in the wild. Have you?

God created the huge whales, all the swarm of life in the waters, And every kind and species of flying birds.

Oh wow, such stunning pictures! Gorgeous autumn colors and great capture of the birds! I've never seen a sleeping bird in the wild, either.
Have a lovely weekend!

Looks like they may be starlings, we get clouds of them here too at dusk, such a wonderful sight.
I often wonder why we never see dead birds, of course you see the one's that have been hit by cars but what happens to all the others?
Wonderful colours in those trees, I love the Autumn for the leaves.
Hope you are both keeping well.

Awesome photos, Ginny! I love the red on the trees, such a gorgeous view. I've never seen a sleeping bird, I've always wondered where they go to sleep!

The red trees and mountain view are so gorgeous! I have always wondered how the birds sleep. They make a lot of noise when the birds come in to roost on the trees. Have a lovely weekend!

well you had quite the show while you were waiting not to mention that beautiful backdrop. Those colors are gorgeous. I was watching a huge flock of birds the other day and it was almost like watching a choreographed dance they way they would fly down towards the ground and then swoop back up.
