Urban Birds

Sometimes walking and watching makes my heart swell, my eyes prickle. Oh, we are so flighty like urban birds. I took the above photos nearby to my apartment, as I usually do I suppose. A walk last Sunday that cleared my head some from weeks previous, there’s a story but it’s not mine to tell.

This video has been making the internet rounds lately, a friend of mine posted it on her facebook wall with these words – “I watched this the other day. Beautiful. Go ahead, let that heart well up.” If you haven’t seen it, then you should take a minute. I’ve seen this before in person, though never with anywhere near as many birds as this. A Murmuration of Starlings.

Don’t Forget, the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge is still happening! We’re currently accepting entries for the colour purple and have had so many beautiful photographs entered so far! Stop by on Thursday to see our Top Pics of the Week.

Finally, the next colour challenge opens for entries on Friday November 11th. The colour theme will be brown and we’d love to have you all take part!

  1. Thanks for sharing that video. I posted some photos of a gathering of blackbirds at our farm a couple of weeks ago — but this is a bit more amazing… inspiring, really.

  2. Thanks for sharing. I love watching birds in their natural habits, especially birds of prey. I am still trying to master photographing birds, especially smaller birds that move pretty quickly.

  3. Love your urban bird pics. I know what you mean about the heart swelling. I often feel that way as I observe nature. Gotta tell ya though, that video reminded me of that Alfred Hitchcock movie that gave me nightmares as a child. lol. Pretty amazing.
