Sky Watch Friday

So, I was walking along, when I met a new friend.

This friend called to me
from up high in the tree.

Have you heard?
Did you know?
There's a party down the road
in the direction you go.
(c) Misty DawnS

Silly Bird, what do you mean?
Are you sure of what you say?
There's a party down the road
in the middle of the day?

Silly Human,
do you say you don't believe?
Keep on walking, and you'll see.
Just remember - you didn't hear it from me!
(c) Misty DawnS

There soon was no doubt
this little birdie deserved my trust.
The further I walked, sure enough,
the more I heard a big ruckus and fuss.
(c) Misty DawnS

Finally I looked up,
and there I stopped short...
(c) Misty DawnS

For, there was certainly a party
or meeting of some sort.
(c) Misty DawnS

But obviously I wasn't invited,
much to my chagrin
(c) Misty DawnS

For, as I approached,
the meeting came to an end.
(c) Misty DawnS

Was it a party of joy?
a tactical ploy?
a reason to celebrate?
a discussion of political debate?
Were they discussing
promotional items
to promote their Blackbird flying relay race?
Or, looking for a new tree
to provide them more space?
(c) Misty DawnS

Whatever the topic,
I will never now.
For they flew without telling
as I watched from below.

Misty: I loved the bluebird in the sky. How many blackbirds were in that tree. It looked like it could have been 150. They do join together to migate.


Great bird photos, and amazing to see so many, almost like a swarm of bees :) Have a great weekend.


I love birds, they look so happy in your photos!
You are good!
Happy Skywatch!


Lovely photos! The sky is so blue and clear in the first several photos. Lovely!!


Moving on or they emulate European starlings.


Amazing series of Sky Watch shots. I can't believe how many birds were in that tree! Reminded me of the movie The Birds.
