Grackle Break

Stephanie and I took a breather and took a walk with Juno out into the Dallas downtown dusk to see the swarm of the Grackles. This local bird gives Dallas something special. The locals are either indifferent to them or they try to scare them away in vain. These pictures do no justice to this.

The sky is thick with them.
I imagine multistory aviaries topping the buildings with millions of Grackles making shifting tornados of birdswarms in the downtown sky. And a booming exotic guano industry too.
