This time of year, the trees out in front of our building are usually full of birds around sunset. This flock stopped by yesterday evening for a little rest and relief from the high winds we were having. Didn't stay long. I always wonder where they're going.

  3. Oh, look at those bare trees! Out here in southern California we don't tend to have leafless trees, but I definitely miss seeing all four seasons!

  4. The silhouettes against the sky are awesome...the birds almost look like they're part of the trees.

    When I see a flock of birds in trees, I'm reminded of the old eucalyptus trees that used to border my home in the foothills...and the hawks that used to perch atop them, lurking. They were kind of scary!

    Here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT

  7. Nice! We get large flocks of robins during the winter. They are usually looking for trees with fruit or berries. It's nice to see the sky even slightly alive in the cold winters around here (Chicago).

  8. We have some like that in our trees and I'm sure they fly back and forth just to taunt the cats.

  9. Oh, that's a great shot! I have one almost exactly like it from late last year. I've thought about posting it but just hadn't gotten to it yet.

    Here's mine for this week: http://myreadersblock.blogspot.com/2011/02/saturday-snapshot-february-26.html

Welcome to Joysweb! And thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors. From time to time, I might have to moderate comments - I know that's not very hospitable, so I try to do it only on posts that are more than a few days old. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Also, please note that while I appreciate blog awards, I don't play award tag games. I think you all deserve awards!
