Snow Birds

Put out seed this morning and was visited by hundreds (maybe thousands) of birds, despite the rapidly falling snow. Blue jays and cardinals were well represented, but the vast majority of my visitors were grackles. Apparently a large group of grackles is called a "plague", which seems rather unpleasant. I think they need a better PR agency. I suppose a "plague" of grackles sounds better than a "murder" of crows, but not by much.
Happy Snow Day!!
