Did anyone else see the Grackles this morning?  We had three groups fly 
over head between 6:45 and 7:15.  Each group was thick with birds and took 
about 2 - 2 1/2 minutes to pass completely. The third group passed directly 
over our house and was so loud the whole family ran to see what was 
happening.  

I am not good at estimating large flocks but I would guesstimate there were 
a couple hundred thousand at least.

The low pressure systemn was directly over us according to radar at that 
time so it must have been a good ride for them. 

Wanted to check out the Winghaven Boardwalk where I have seen them in large 
numbers previously but my girls want to play with friends instead of going 
to "feed the ducks".  Oh well.
