Black Birds in Dogwood Tree - Photograph

I took these photographs of a large flock of black birds that invaded my yard this past week.

I think these were Grackles. The flock landed in my yard and foraged through the fallen leaves for food. They also landed in my Dogwood tree and were eating the red berries on it.

This was my second "horror movie" experience this week. I was inside my house when I heard a lot of rustling outside, through the fallen leaves. I then started hearing a cacophony of bird chatter. I looked out the window and saw black birds descending into my yard and start scurrying around. It was like that scene from "The Birds." ;-)

Unfortunately these birds were very skittish. When I went outside to try to get photographs of them, they flew into the surrounding woods. But I did manage to get some good photographs of them. They flew in and out of my yard about three or four times.

Your skills make grackles look beautiful! Not my favorite birds, but they look amazing in your dogwood tree.
