I wonder what's going on?
For the last 15 minutes, thousands upon thousands of geese have been flying from the north, over the house and landing in the field across the road.
There must be millions out there right now!
It's like a huge, swirling tornado of wings as they turn and curve over the spot where they've decided to land.

We've seen thousands over the last few weeks, but this is like every single one of the one's that we saw go north have decided to turn around, come back and bring friends all at once! And wow, are they loud. The noise is deafening.

And hot on their tails are thousands of sparrows and tons of blackbirds.

I wonder what the heck has them so spooked? It's like someone to the north hit the panic button.

I'm going back to staring up at the sky...

*holy cow - now, ducks too! The rain/sleet/freezing rain/slush falling from the big, gray sky doesn't seem to be bothering them a bit.

They are all following suit. Must be really chilly up north.

Hiya Curtis!
Thanks for dropping in.
I don't know what the heck is going on up north, but cold might be it. I'm sure they got up there and thought, "What were we thinking?" lol.
