Amazing On A Gray Day

Good evening loyal readers. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your observant doggie reporter 
Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

I thought it would be a drab and dreary day today. The sun could hardly shine through the endless gray clouds. 

Ghostwriter and Dad were just sitting down for dinner when we saw some crows fly by. There were only a few at first.

But then, more and more kept coming!

Soon there were so many that ghostwriter and I went outside to watch them. They continued to fly over for more than twenty minutes! We thought it was odd that they were all headed north instead of south. Ghostwriter wondered if they were going to the City of Rochester, which is north of here. It seems every year big flocks of crows gather in the City at night to roost and make all kinds of noise and mess. There must have been thousands of crows flying over our house this afternoon. I can't imagine all of them sitting in one place for the night!

We also saw a huge flock of starlings go by.

Geese were flying as well, but they were headed south. 

Oh, and one jet flew by.

By the time the sky was clear of flying birds, ghostwriter's diner was cold. 

I'd be happy to eat that cold dinner if you don't want it. Just saying.


  1. Your boring day turned into a rather interesting one,Chester. Just imagine if those bird wanted to roost in your trees?? OMD!!
    And like we already told you, your header is quite eyecatching and beautiful!

  2. Those are such cool photos. Ghostwriter is such a good paw-

    Thanks for cheering up what was otherwise a dull day.

  3. Am I the only one who is a little freaked out by all the birds flying in the wrong direction.

  4. we were just looking back at last year when we had hundreds of birds in our yard about this time

  10. Oh yeah those big crows sure make a mess in the city. We love watching all the birdies that come to or fly over our house too.

  11. I think the geese were the smartest :)

  12. Chester,
    The first words out of my mouth were gonna be that is a gorgeous header. Ann has a most artistic eye. FYI: all the crows made it to yard of Madi w/o any problems...thankfully the geese have not arrived. We don't have any water too close to the house
    Hugs madi your bfff

  13. Yikes! It's like the movie the birds

  14. Hi Chester, make sure they don't poop as they fly overhead. We have snow on the ground, ice and by Thursday night, more snow. My dad says that he might have to put the skis on my wagon and pull me around.

    1. At least get some snow tires, Sammy! We have some snow coming our way through next week! We thinks that after last year's wimpy winter, we're in for a big one this year!

  15. Hi hi hi! Ojo here! Those are a LOT of crows! If your ghostwriter's dinner was cold, perhaps you helped by eating it for her???

  16. I bet you live along a birdy flight path. That is a lot of birdies!
