Might be my fault.

I live in the Southpoint area and have lately taken to firing 'bottle rockets' into the sky to urge the massive (massive!) gatherings of flocking black birds (starlings?) that self organize into throbbing, oozing aerial mobs and then roost in nearby stands of trees while chirping incessantly, to quietly move along.

LOL. We've been enjoying seeing them flock near the cow farm on Herndon. But of course they are not chirping near my windows. I feel for you. I think thats the real reason my husband wanted to move from our last house.

I saw those black birds last week. There were thousands of them. They all parked themselves on two neighbors lawns, covering every inch of grass. I wish I had taken a picture. I've never seen anything like it. When flying around lask week in the gloomy mornings, it looked like something out of the Hitchcock movie.

It is amazing that people are allowed to park and hunt within yards of the road... all those trucks parked next to highway 54 in Durham are hunters.

Nah, it's Durham. They must be drive-byers who got out to finish the job.
