The first real snow came yesterday and in late afternoon a large flock of starlings were braving the wet snow and wind, grazing the tops of trees and falling like leaves from branches.
(I hope the GIF isn’t too annoying, it would be nice to be able to click on it and make it stop! Oh well…)

This entry seems to fit well with the WordPress Daily Post Prompt Rearrange.
Even as I was in the car driving I could hear the lot of them. They were congregated across the high trees. Arguing. Falling like dark leaves from the branches as they took turns plundering the cornfields. Tiny seeds in greedy black beaks.
