C'est intéressant pour les oiseaux lorsque les graines viennent d'être semées.
Mary MacADNski: The farmer is plowing the field making the worms come to the surface. Fresh dinner.

This is great, love the mobile action here
Mary MacADNski: This is one of my favorite ever commute stops.
A real swarm of them!
Mary MacADNski: I got to follow them and a pair of young boys skate boarding on the country road.
Did you sneeze Mary? I like Joni Mitchel, but I think you know that. I don't know this song though.
Mary MacADNski: I stopped at the right time is all I can say.
I can almost sense the sound of them all squawking.
Mary MacADNski: It was a magical moment and I had not even realized about the eagle yet.

Great shots, but surely the murmur action is of starlings. But then what do I know? I do know I like Joni though.
Mary MacADNski: Yes, the murmuration is about the blackbirds but I had stopped to shoot the farmer and gulls. The murmuration happened during it all. A lucky stop to get yesterday's eagle, my personal favorite shot so far this year.
Mumuration--a lovely word...
Mary MacADNski: It is a great word that in a way describes the sound but I think of the sound more as chattering or chatting.
this is a superb presentation of all of the different birds following the tractor Mary...

thanks for Joni Mitchell today....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: I love this Joni song so thank you for liking it too. I have a few more of the gulls and tractor.
