Hi Garye,

I've just been down to feed a feral flock I keep an eye on and I was so mad that I hadn't got my camera today.

I only feed them about twice a week and so when I turn up they pour out of the building they roost in and as they are mainly white, they look amazing.

After they have eaten they take to the sky and circle and swoop around for about half an hour, it is a wonderful sight as the white ones show up beautifully against the dark sky.

I must take my camera down next time.

Loved your photos.

Janet

Thanks for posting those pictures, Garye!! :D

Never ceases to amaze me how they stay in formation when flying in their circles!

They DO get possessive about their "eating" spot!

Love and Hugs

I never realized how beautiful the patterns on their wings were until I shot these photos of them flying. They really have some beautiful wings.

Plus, they're cute when they're flying up (hovering) ready to jump onto the pile of gray below to get at the grub. :D I sometimes wonder how they don't hurt each other doing that.

I had some shots of them landing but they didn't come out too good. They're just like planes. The landing gear comes down (feet) and it's angled for the ground for a soft landing, wings spread to slow down the speed. Now I know where we got our aviation ideas from.
