Angry Birds...right here in Glenview

So the picture doesn't really do it justice but it was an interesting morning. On my way to the barn I walked through whatever the plural of flocks of birds is. With fall setting in we have an over abundance of winged critters. From the Canada geese to the occasional black bird the farm is a "must stop" on the feathered feeding circle. This morning I think it was mostly sparrows that I disturbed as I made my way to the barn. Usually the birds just take off as you approach. Today they formed a kind of funnel cloud of winged furry around my position. OK, it really wasn't that menacing but it impressed me enough that I went back and got my camera so I could tell the story.
