Bye, Bye, Blackbirds

The red-winged blackbirds are flocking up for their big fall migration.  This morning they gathered in great throngs in the trees along our pasture, thick as leaves.  I was hoping to catch a murmuration flight on video, but no luck.

Here is a bit of video, but it doesn't capture the incredible surround sound of being there:

I love the blackbird migration! Here in MD, it seems they travel via in invisible tube in the sky. There will be a long line of blackbirds as far as the eye can see each way. Amazing!
