I have been noticing huge flocks of birds during the winter time here in TN, and usually around evening. I was wondering what kind of birds they were and why I keep seeing such huge flocks. So I did a little research tonight and found out some info. I am just fascinated with nature and animals and why they do the things they do.
So the huge flocks I have been seeing are Starlings. Everyone's favorite bird! LOL! In the winter months they congregate together in huge flocks. There are more of them here in the south since many migrate down here from the north. They typically find one area to roost in for the evening, and will travel as much as 20 miles from the roosting site to feed during the day. And then at the end of the day they come together again to roost and that is when I am seeing those huge flocks. And when I say huge, I mean it looks like the Alfred Hitchcock movie!! I found a couple photos on the internet to give you an idea of what I am talking about. Its like they just keep coming and coming and coming with no end in sight. It is wild!
