Starlings At Dusk-Explore #71 Nov 2, 2009

Starlings Gathering For Their Evening Roost.

I was headed for home on California's famously scenic Highway One when I noticed this vision out of the corner of my eye. After coming to a quick stop and backing down the highway, I was able to snap this shot. No one even honked or offered a rude gesture. I watched the birds for a moment until they lifted off in unison and flew.

Sturnus vulgaris.
