Yeah, over shopping centers and other public areas where people leave food trash behind.

I've noticed that the darker it gets, the more they flock to thr trees and start their jockeying there.

When my kid was at Rice, they sometimes needed umbrellas on a sunny day.

^^^ ROFLMAO! That's hilarious. I'm saving that pic to facebook.

Someone asked where they go after dark. I know of one place - go to the HEB in Clear Lake on El Camino. They congrate in the trees in the parking lot at night, and they are LOUD.

They seem to really get a thrill out of HEBs. They do the same at the HEBs in Katy on both Fry Road/I-10 and Highland Knolls/Mason Road.

Not as bad at the HEB on Westheimer and Fouintainview but you can still see/hear them.
