If you look closely below, you can see that most of them are redwing blackbirds.
In the full-size image, I could also see a few plain blackbirds and maybe a few starlings amongst them.
They made quite a black mass upon takeoff! A noisy one, also.
(No, that's not snow below them. It's milkweed seed puffs that have blown across the driveway.)
This shot below looks like some kind of weird painting, but with the wings spread, you can see lots of red throughout it.
I'm almost done with my sewing pattern test project. I'm not sure whether I'll be blogging it right away or if I'll wait until the pattern is ready to be released. But there will be pics on Instagram right away, if you're really anxious to see it. ;) Again, my ID is GRANDMA_G415. Now I'd better go finish it up.............
