Tour guide, with her flock

Tour guides in Rome (and other cities, too) are often characterized by small flags that they wave around on a wooden rod, so that their group will know where their guide is, and where he/she is heading. I saw several such flag-equipped guides earlier in the day, when I was at the Coliseum, but I didn't expect to see one here, on one side of Piazza Barberini...

These photos were all taken on Saturday, Dec 6th, after finishing a computer conference in Rome. I spent the morning wandering around the Coliseum and surrounding neighborhood, and then the late afternoon over by the Castel Sant'Angelo, and St. Peters. The swarm of starlings appeared over the river, just before dark, on the way back past the Ponte Sant'Angelo...
