Subject: [VTBIRD] TVs over Manchester - and Blackbirds in the yard

Tues while I was standing in line for my free Ben & jerry's ice cream, I watched this 'swarm' of TV circling overhead.  I didn't know they, too, liked B&Js!!

These guys must have been in migration. This is a first in VT scene for me. I, hopefully, scanned for Black Vultures, but lighting was poor... and none noted.

Also, large flocks of juncos, red-wing BBs and grackles feeding on the ground and at feeders in my yard on Tues.  They are here again today.  Checkk list for yard birds below.
