Rest Stop

I stepped outside one morning to some overwhelming chirping noises.


I look up and it's like a scene from Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds.


Yeah, sure, it's not every day that you wake up and your front yard's bird population has increased by 5000 percent, but I didn't think too much of it until I was getting ready for the blog post.

When I looked closer at one of the photos that I had gotten of the birds, I noticed that some of them had red "shoulder pads" type thingies on their wings.


A little bit of Googling found them out to be Red Winged Blackbirds, ( well, maybe some of them were ), and they were probably taking a breather on their migratory journey down south!

The number of birds is a little scary, but the shoulder pads are pretty!
