As I sat at my island this morning (yes, I'm on the laptop), this "black cloud" suddenly covered my kitchen window. I thought it was odd. Then I glanced to the right and out my french doors. Black...everywhere!
It was birds! Thousands of birds! I've never seen anything like it. My yard was literally covered in black. You couldn't see the grass.
It was hard to get some pictures because I knew opening the door would scare them. I tried a few from inside.
Then I tried opening the door and got a few shots off.
Now you see the birds flying away.
There's a reason for that besides my opening the door. I forgot about Boudreaux. Boudreaux is a car chaser. Yes, I hate to admit it but he loses all inner control when a car goes by. We have to take him out on a leash. I know "we" need some training...sigh.
So, Boudreaux zips out the door while I'm snapping pics and off he goes! See that little white spot in the picture. Yep, that's Boo.
And the birds have left and not come back...but what fun while they were here!
