Before and After

January 31 and we sat on the porch in shirt sleeves and had our morning coffee break. Winter has its own beauty but these "before and after" photos sure have me longing for spring!

A murmuration of starlings

This morning we watched for over fifteen minutes as thousands (maybe tens of thousands!) of red-winged blackbirds (or starlings) flew over our neighborhood in a ribbon that had to be miles long! They were headed northeast. I hope they get where they were going before our snow arrives!
