As soon as I saw your banner, Dirt, I could hear the wonderful cacaphony of musical notes that must have coloured the air as much as their bright red bursts of colour on their black wings did in your photo.

What a symphony of sound and colour! Thanks so much for this one! Hurray!

Oh wow!
Thank you all so very much for the compliments and the wild generosity of acorns ( @dave , @Fleur569 , @DaylilySLP , @HemNorth , @iciris, @JHeirloomSeeds, @lovemyhouse, @mcash70, @pardalinum, @tofitropic)
and thank you Sue for running this one!!
I really appreciate it!

It's not easy catching a flock of birds unpredictably flying from site to site in dense vegetation--I tried for about 20 minutes and gave up. Yes Nora--it was indeed a wonderful cacophony and a fabulous day Smiling

Asa and I are headed out for my birthday trip to wherever we go ( Hilarious! how's that for a destination--perfect Thumbs up ) and I hope we bring back some cool pics to share with you.
If I fail to thank more of you, it's because I'm gone--sincerest pre-thanks!

Thank you all, again Green Grin!
