Starlings Murmuration

We had our yearly fall visitations of Starlings today.... almost a MONTH early. So I don't have much hope that this is going to be a mild winter!

A group of starlings is called a "Murmuration" why? Haven't a clue.. but it does sound good.

These are pictures of just a few, there were THOUSANDS of them, all over the place, but they kept moving so I couldn't get much shots!

They played in the puddles

Ignored the scary scarecrows

And Merlin kept a vigilant watch on them... just to make sure they didn't try to get inside!
