Nice shot. I like the scene for this flock, the colours pop.

Thank you, Paul. The birds do add a bit of drama, but I would have taken the picture without them because, as you said, the colours look good, and the light was wonderful too.

Hundreds of blackbirds of various species vacate their perch and head to another tree a short distance away. It is common for huge flocks to form as they migrate south for winter.
