Subject: RE: BS: Birdwatching 2009
Didn't read the thread... sorry. Just had to post this. Yesterday, I saw sommat I have never seen. Anybody else ever see a flock of Chickadees that numbered over a hundred? I have been around these wonderfully entertaining birds all my life, but never any more than a few dozen in a flock, if even close to that! I was amazed, and entertained to no end. Never seen such a flock!

It was obvious that the flock was "divided". Some groups were moving alternate ways from other groups while feeding, but they were a flock... were they? Maybe it was a few flocks that happened to meet? Anyone see such a flock? Was it just a family reunion?
