Like something out of a Hitchcock movie, thousands of small birds swarm over our neighborhood every night at sunset. What you see here is nothing compared to the really dense clouds of them that descended on the house a few nights ago, according to my wife. The funny thing is that they don't swarm like schools of fish that all move in the same direction, in waves. No, these budgies swarm like gnats around your head in May. All different directions all at the same time. Sorry for the compression artifacts. The sky at dusk is difficult to capture without some quantization effects.
