Flocks 12-19-14

The ordinary can be extraordinary.  On this gray day we had visits from several huge flocks of birds.  First dozens of robins descended on the cedar berries and dug around in the leaf litter. Of course the resident flock of turkeys was ever present with the two biggest males strutting. Just now we counted more than thirty mourning doves, well camouflaged in the meadow.
