starlings- thankful #43

There is a flock of starlings that live in and around my neighborhood. When we first bought this house it had been empty for a year and apparently the starlings had taken over. They regularly dive bombed us (even Tommy) for the first few months we lived here. They were not our favorites. After they decided that we were here to stay (reinforced by judicious use of the broom) they backed off and haven't been a problem. I have been noticing them lately. They are beautiful. I love the way they move in perfect harmony. My children love to watch them swoop and dive all around sky in our backyard. As do I, as long as they aren't swooping directly at us.
