God Sent Grackles

He really did. I truly love the sound of a large flock of grackles. These flocks also occasionally include other birds - usually starlings. For some reason, the sound soothes me. For the last couple of days there has been a large flock near my house. Today I went out and asked God to bring them over to my backyard - which He did. Hundreds of birds in my tree and the surrounding trees. What a joy.

As I listened I thought, these birds are like carolers - they go from tree to tree, singing their songs. Eventually they move on to another location and sing their song for someone else.

They're welcome in my yard any time.
