I was out in my yard one morning
watching as all of these birds were
flocking together in one tree.
This is one of my favorite things
At first they saw me with my dogs
inching closer & closer with the
camera and they all flew away
at the same time & then they ,
as if on cue , returned to their
same original spot all at once .
They sat, chattered , and preened .

Birds Of A Feather , Flock Together
(Please click on these pictures to enlarge , they're amazing.)
Every time I see this I am amazed . It all seems so organized . Who is the leader of this flock ? It did not seem obvious to me. What kind of signal do they get to all get up and fly at once ?
So , after such a big display I have to wonder ..... what do they do for the rest of the day ??? Do they fly a couple of miles til they see just the right tree & then start their show again for someone else who may be standing silently just as I was ?
