The redwing blackbirds migrated through today. It was quite a sight. Millions and millions (that's what it seemed like; I have no actual idea how many) birds landed on our pasture and pond. I tried to get close enough to get some photos. Thankfully, no doo-doo on the head. Actually it kind of amazes me that that many birds move through, and the place isn't covered with droppings. They do move very quickly though. The descend in mass and rise and mass and fly a stones throw, and then descend again.
