    A murmuration, clutter or constellation of Starlings. From "An Asylum of Loons"

    I was out feeding the birds earlier, and there was a huge amount of bird noise. They took off and the sky was full of them. I wasn't quick enough to get a pic. They came back though.

    I took these shortly after. It was beginning to feel like a Hitchcock movie.......

    Have a great weekend! Be safe!

    Wow... I have a lot in my backyard before but nowhere near that many! :eek: Starlings are really pretty though if you can get a close look at one... the iridescent coloration they have is cool.

    Nice captures Gary!!! :thumbsup:
    We used to have stately Elm trees throughout our neighborhood in Buffalo! A shady archway covered our block.
    When Starlings flocked there, they created their own definition of $hitstorm!!:eek::D

    Gary, I wouldn't be too concerned unless Tippi Hedren shows up! ;)

    Looks to me like a PEREGRINE'S 5 star restaurant just opened up,
    albeit a bit off the normal flight path. ;)

    They are pretty and plentiful! We see them at our feeders sometimes.

    I was hoping they wouldn't fly directly overhead, Charlie!

    Tippi is 90 now! Yikes that makes me feel old! She was a blonde bombshell!

    The special of the day is back forty bugs!:D

    May I introduce Hitchcock the king of the local Lorikeet flock...[​IMG]
    These things should catalogued in the book as " A Crime Syndicate of Rainbow Lorikeets".They turn up several times a day and Im forced to handover sunflower seeds...its like the whole pretty polly in a cage deal has been reversed...if the screen door is open he flies into the kitchen ...if you dont have seeds i could leave something for you on the table.

    Vincent Mazzei (Vcm knives) posted it on Facebook. I couldn’t find any news articles, so it must have been a connection he had I’m guessing.

    He had a heart attack while taking a nap. He was still at work to the end! A sad day for all the cutlery world! I am going to miss him!
    The generous, gentleman knife maker!!:(

    Very sad news about Tony Bose, he always seemed such a nice feller :( I remember Paul Mason telling me several times how kind and helpful Tony had been, and I believe he was equally generous with many other knifemakers. What a wealth of knowledge we have lost. Sincere condolences to his family and friends, the knife world is a poorer place without him :(
